One Heart Worldwide Birthing Centers
These are temporary aid tents in the Dhading region put up quickly after the earthquake last year. They have since been replaced by a beautiful new building. Director Arlene Samen was here during a 7.4 aftershock that occurred a few days after the main quake and watched the previous building crumble. Within an hour of that aftershock, 5 women showed up at this tent in labor. In all, hundreds of women gave birth safely in One Hearts tents while damaged centers were built or rebuilt. How safely? Zero maternal or baby deaths in these tents!
