Health Environmental and Learning Program (H.E.L.P.), founded in 1999 by Tim & Lani Ackerman serving in the Himalayas, is an interdenominational Christian organization and community development program.

Using the model of Jesus’ ministry to meet both the physical and spiritual needs of the poor, their focus is to equip the national church and assist them in developing their own community and ministering to people of all faiths. Through Christian Community Development in the areas of literacy, animal husbandry, health, agriculture, income generation, and environment preservation, H.E.L.P. serves the poor of the Himalayas in Asia.

God continues to use H.E.L.P. daily to alleviate spiritual and physical poverty of the poor. Read the latest ministry update!
