MISSION: “Healing people and transforming lives through education, health and research.”
Miraglo Foundation, founded in 2011 by Mimi Guarneri, MD and Rauni Prittinen King, RN, is dedicated to providing healthcare and education to the underserved. Grants are given to support programs nationally and internationally that enhance the sustainability of people and communities. The non-profit was created after traveling to developing countries and witnessing poverty and starvation, with the goal of more effectively improving the lives of those in greatest need.
The Studio at Pacific Pearl was created through the financial support of Miraglo Foundation and the Taylor Advised Endowment Fund for Integrative and Holistic Medicine Education and Research.
In the words of Miraglo Foundation’s founders, “Our goal is to promote love, dignity and healing to those in need around the world. The international board of directors oversees each and every donation, gift and expense. Your generous gifts enable us to fulfill our vision and mission of delivering healthcare and education to underserved communities globally.”
“2014 was a busy year with the opening of our new center, Pacific Pearl La Jolla, where we have the opportunity to research the impact of innovative care delivery that is focused on health and preventing disease. Our newly renovated education and research studio is now poised to educate nationally through on-line education.”

Miraglo Foundation, 501(c)3 non-profit, was born after Pacific Pearl La Jolla’s Rauni Prittinen King RN and Mimi Guarneri MD spent years traveling extensively to developing countries and witnessed the poverty and human suffering. When in Maiti Nepal in Kathmandu, the team met the founder Anuradha Koirala–a social worker and CNN Her–who has been rescuing approximately 12,000 young children. Of the 12,000 most were girls saved from human trafficking and sex slavery. (see CNN news bulletin below with Anderson Cooper). Miraglo Foundation has been assisting by providing housing, healthcare and educational grants since the its inception in 2011.
In the aftermath of this devastating earthquake, this service is in critical need. Currently Maiti Nepal (Mother’s Home) houses 425 girls and Ms. Koirala is planning to take an additional 200 young lives to her home. Funding is needed immediately to provide for these children in Nepal. Your contribution to Miraglo Foundation will support Anuradha Koirala’s critical work at Maiti Nepal and will also go towards “Mountain Fund” Project in Himalayas that provide similar services for women and children in need.
