A few weeks ago World Vitae made our first contribution of 2016 through our Giving Back Program. The donation went to One Heart World-Wide, who are providing lifesaving care to Nepalese women during pregnancy and childbirth.

OHWW2One Heart World-Wide will use the money to distribute medical supplies and equipment; set up, equip, and staff baby delivery clinics; and train skilled birth attendants and community health providers. These programs improve infant and maternal survival rates in some of the poorest areas of Nepal and in particular regions hit especially hard by the April 2015 earthquake.

It was very moving making this contribution, knowing that we’re supporting women’s health at the very basic level of survival, if only in a very small way.

You, too, should know that of every dollar you spend on WorldVitae.com, 5% of it goes directly to helping women like these mother’s in Nepal get the basic medical care they need. Your purchase here means not only doing something good for yourself, but also something good for the health of women around the world.

A very heartfelt THANK YOU, indeed, to all who shopped with us in the last quarter of 2015, and made this possible. Your donation means so much to the women in Nepal. One Heart World-Wide thanks you for your compassion and generosity.

We look forward to making greater contributions each quarter and furthering our mission of supporting women’s health around the world.

With your help, we can do more!
