Helping Hands' hard work has consistently resulted in monkey helpers enriching, and in many cases totally transforming, the quality of life of their recipients. Fostering a special relationship between the helper and recipient, where each benefits from, and to some extent is dependent upon, the other, is at the very heart of Foundation Robmar's philosophy of supporting projects which have the human-animal bond at their core. Robmar is privileged to be associated with Helping Hands in its endeavors to assist those living with disabilities.
