About Helping Hands USA

Helping Hands USA was founded by Siddiga Ahmed in late 2021 at the height of the COVID-19 Pandemic as an all-volunteer organization.  Siddiga emigrated to the United State in 1998 from Sudan with her husband and two children. Like many immigrants, her accounting degree earned in Sudan was not recognized in the United States.  Based on her experiences as an immigrant, Muslim woman in a post-9/11 United States, Siddiga decided to pursue a career in Social Work. She earned her Bachelor’s degree in 2016 from the University of North Carolina-Greensboro and continued her studies to earn her Master’s Degree in Clinical Social Work from the Joint UNCG-NC A&T Clinical Social Work program. She is now a licensed Clinical Social Worker Associate. Her objective is to provide accessible mental health counseling to immigrant, refugee, and asylum-seeking individuals and other under-served and marginalized person.
