Here at Louis Allis we support a wide variety of ministry efforts across the globe. Efforts that are both close to home like recent tornado relief efforts in Alabama and international with organizations like Mountain Child in Nepal. Our employees at Louis Allis are also intimately involved with these ministries, even giving charitable donations or service hours toward these causes.
Here’s a look at just a couple of the amazing ways your partnership with Louis Allis goes to making this world a better place.
MountainChild exists for the purpose of raising awareness, resources and financial aid for humanitarian work carried out amongst impoverished children living in the Himalayas. They began in 1997 when short-term exploratory teams traveled to the region to investigate reports of severe medical, social, educational, and environmental challenges facing children living in the Himalayas. Children from these areas are counted fortunate if they live to see their early adolescence. Research indicates that over 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. Statistics show one out of every five children born in the remote areas of the Himalayas will die before the age of one. 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. MountainChild takes careful steps to ensure that the cultural integrity and rich history of these precious children remains intact.
Youth With A Mission is an international volunteer movement of Christians from many backgrounds, cultures and Christian traditions, dedicated to serving Jesus throughout the world. Also known as YWAM (pronounced “WHY-wham”), their purpose is simply to know God and to make Him known. When YWAM began in 1960, their main focus was giving young people opportunities to demonstrate the love of Jesus to the whole world, according to His command in Mark 16:15. Today, they still focus on youth, but have members (known as “YWAMers”) of almost every age and many of their short-term efforts have grown into long-term endeavors that have impacted lives and nations. YWAM has a decentralized structure that encourages new vision and the exploration of new ways to change lives through training, convey the message of the gospel and care for those in need. They are currently operating in more than 1000 locations in over 180 countries, with a staff of over 18,000.
