One Heart World-Wide

"Mission: Saving the lives of women and newborns one birth at a time". One Heart World-Wide programs improve the health and well-being of pregnant women and infants that would not otherwise have access to maternal and child-health services due to sociocultural barriers, limited personal resources, or remote living conditions. Essential to our programs are the integration of local resources, collaboration with local communities and providers, with respect for cultural norms and practices. In each of our program sites, we are committed to working within the local culture, respecting and honoring it while helping women access a safe delivery
Re-establish a Healthcare Infrastructure in Nepal
 
One year ago, on April 25th, 2015, a 7.8 magnitude earthquake struck Nepal. The devastation was immediate and far-reaching. More than 2 million people lost their home, more than 17,000 people suffered injuries, and more than 8,700 people died. The Nepali government asked One Heart World-Wide to help rebuild health care centers in our program areas. One year later we remain committed to support the people of Nepal as they rebuild their lives today and in the following years. project reportread updates from the field
Better Maternal Care for Adolescent Tarahumaras
 
Because most Tarahumara become pregnant by the age of 12-14, One Heart World-Wide is dedicated to train community-based volunteers in the Copper Canyon to become Foot Soldiers of Change. These volunteers reach out to their peers to ensure that pregnant adolescents have access to valuable information for future pregnancy spacing, support during their pregnancy and access to care for delivery, thereby saving many lives as adolescent mothers are much more prone to complications in pregnancy. project reportread updates from the field

Help us raise $12,000 in aid for the Tarahumara!
 
This year's combination of drought and extremely low temperatures has brought food production in the Copper Canyon to a drastic low. Many of the indigenous groups in the region are facing serious food shortages. The populations we work with - pregnant women, nursing mothers, and infants are the hardest hit by food shortage and right now, they need our support. Help us send food aid and prenatal vitamins to the families of the Copper Canyon! project reportread updates from the field
