iHelp Foundation was started in 2003. The maiden voyage of iHelp was a trip of best friends on their way to save the world after a mudslide in El Salvador. Two friends took all of their money, raided their parent's food storage, bought an old van named "El Cacahuate de Plata," which couldn't even pass U.S. inspections, and headed for the US Mexico border. Loaded with medical equipment, clothes, and first-aid provisions they travelled from Logan, Utah to San Salvador, El Salvador. What began as two crazy kids spending every cent in their pockets on an old van has become an amazing ride that has blessed and served many people throughout the world.
Over the years we have participated in building medical clinics, schools, homes, rushing into disaster areas, and bringing physicians and students to Central America, Africa and Haiti. We focus on disaster relief and education in the United States and internationally. We desire everyone to come and learn, to grow their abilities, and to serve those around them. We believe that you will find a program that resonates with you, challenges you, and brings you tremendous joy as you serve others!
