Saving Lives in Nepal with One Heart Worldwide

Maternal and infant mortality is a huge issue, world-wide. When I met Arlene Saman, the founder of One Heart Worldwide I was excited by the results they were seeing and I had ideas for ways to make the work even stronger. It was my pleasure to join the board of directors in 2015 and watch the work grow. Until this year, I've only watched from afar, but in 2018 my wife (@MsGreene) and I made the trek to Nepal with Arlene and 14 other people to see the work first hand. Join us as we recount the sights and sounds of Nepal from our journey with One Heart Worldwide.
