Our Vision: “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. In  2014, we opened our new center, the 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.

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.”

Your contribution to Miraglo Foundation will support Anuradha Koirala critical work at Maiti Nepal. Learn more and donate through Miraglo Foundation website:

  • Anuradha Koirala, Maiti Nepal: Maiti Nepal is an organization which was started 20 years ago in Kathmandu, Nepal  by a social worker Anuradha Koirala. Her mission was to rescue young children, mostly girls from sex slavery, providing housing, healthcare and education. Her program, a rehabilitation center in Kathmandu has grown to Twelve Intervention Outposts to prevent girls from being trafficked. Maiti Nepal volunteers, who have been rescued from the Indian brothels themselves, watch for the pimps crossing the border with innocent girls who are ignorant of their fate.  The Intervention Outposts serve as “safe houses” providing shelter for short stays, ensuring safe passage home when this is appropriate, and working with the police to apprehend traffickers. We help raise funds to support the courageous girls who are saving their sisters at the Intervention Outposts of Maiti Nepal.
