MountainChild (www.mountainchild.org) exists for the purpose of raising awareness, resources and financial aid for humanitarian work carried out amongst impoverished children living in the Himalayas. Children from these areas are counted fortunate if they live to see their early adolescence and the statistics are staggering; 1 out of 5 deaths of children is due to a water related disease and 24,000 children under the age of five died from water related diseases within Nepal in 2012. MountainChild is urgently working to improve the lives of these children by bringing food, medical aid, education and love to children who have little chance of survival amongst such hostile conditions. At MountainChild, they are hyper-fanatical about stopping the cycle of suffering. Their passionate purpose is all about enabling the mountain child to become a carrier of hope to their people. Five (5) core issues have been identified in MountainChild’s pursuit to meet our stated objectives and to carry hope to the children of the Himalayas. The five core issues are HEALTH, TRAFFICKING, ENVIRONMENT, EDUCATION, and CHILD LABOR.
