One Heart Worldwide

Every women deserves a safe birth yet half a million women die in pregnancy and childbirth – 99% of these deaths happen in low and middle income countries. One Heart World-Wide has developed a “Network of Safety”, a unique model to prevent the deaths of mothers and their infants in rural areas. They are dedicated to saving the lives of women and children. The organization works with disadvantaged communities to raise awareness and teach good birth practices. In the 10 years that the One Heart program was active in Tibet, the number of women who died in childbirth annually dropped from 33 to zero.
