May 8th 2014, SANTA MONICA, CA -- Transparent Fish Fund and the Chao Foundation sponsored One Heart Worldwide's Annual Grateful Heart Gala by providing a dollar-for-dollar matching grant for all donations up to $500. The sold-out event included a live band and silent auction, and was hosted by celebrity guest emcee Carrie-Anne Moss. All proceeds went towards One-Heart's unique programs dedicated towards preventing the deaths of mothers and infants in remote rural communities around the world.
This is our second year working with One-Heart World Wide. Last year we donated a total of $50,000 that went to neonatal programs in Mexico and Nepal. Their life-saving programs were initially established in the late 1990’s in the Tibetan Autonomous Region and in the last ten years, they have been able to decrease unattended home births from 85% to 20%, mostly by ensuring the presence of a skilled attendant at delivery. They also work closely with local communities and health providers to develop a culturally appropriate "Network of Safety" around mothers and infants. Based on their years of experience, One Heart has developed an effective, replicable, and sustainable model to reduce preventable deaths related to pregnancy and delivery among vulnerable rural populations.
