“The firm structure of Ree Gaun Health Post was completely destroyed during last year’s earthquake. Later we came to know that a birthing tent was deployed in our area to conduct deliveries. Knowing that, I was still unsure about delivering my baby in this temporary tent. But my elder sister who works there advised me to deliver safely in tent rather than at home.  I personally visited and saw the ambience of the birthing tent which looked no different than a well-equipped delivery room of a health post. I was convinced and had no second thoughts. The delivery was normal and attended by the trained health worker. 

I came to know that One Heart World-Wide provided the tent here immediately after the earthquake. Thank you for the temporary shelter that helped every pregnant women of my village to deliver their babies safely. Without it, we would have had to deliver at our home or in an open field.”
