not org specific, but 

,----[ C-h f helm-do-grep RET ]
| helm-do-grep is an interactive autoloaded Lisp function in
| `helm-grep.el'.
| It is bound to C-x c M-g s, <menu-bar> <tools> <Helm> <Tools> <Grep>.
| (helm-do-grep)
| Preconfigured helm for grep.
| Contrarily to Emacs `grep', no default directory is given, but
| the full path of candidates in ONLY.
| That allow to grep different files not only in `default-directory' but 
| by marking them (C-<SPACE>). If one or more directory is selected
| grep will search in all files of these directories.
| You can also use wildcard in the base name of candidate.
| If a prefix arg is given use the -r option of grep (recurse).
| The prefix arg can be passed before or after start file selection.
| See also `helm-do-grep-1'.

is very good at this.
