Louise Elliott is the mother of 4 (Mary, Angela, Heidi and Joe), wife of Barry and new grandmother of two incredible boys (Gavin Bauer and Anthony Koopman). She resides in Belle River, is an active parishioner at St. John the Evangelist Parish in Woodsee. Louise has worked for the past 15 years as a Quality Manager in various Injection Molding Facilities. While she loves the challenges of her working world, her true passion is working with Guatemala Hope and the amazing villagers it serves.
Louise founded Guatemala Hope (originally knows as Guatemala Relief) in response to a request from her friend, Rosa Gutierrez, a refugee from the village of el Triunfo in Guatemala. Since the beginning Louise has served on the Board of Directors and is the veteran of over 20 trips to El Triunfo. She is delighted that this has also become a love affair for the rest of her family. Louise continues to be amazed at the great growth and expansion of Guatemala Hope, and the countless loving hours of donated labour that our villagers, Board members and members of Guatemala Hope give so generously. God is good!!!
