MountainChild is a non-profit organization, which exists for the purpose of raising awareness, resources, and financial aid for humanitarian work carried out amongst impoverished children living in the Himalayas. Research indicates that half will die before reaching their eighth birthday, which is most vividly demonstrated by the gripping fact that many parents will not name their children until the child reaches the age of five. MountainChild is dedicated to CARRY HOPE to these children.
