MIRAGO Foundation, 501(c)3 non-profit, was born after Pacific Pearl La Jolla’s Rauni Prittinen King, R.N. and Mimi Guarneri, M.D. 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 Hero--who has rescued approximately 12,000 young children. Of the 12,000 most were girls saved from human trafficking and sex slavery. MIRAGLO Foundation has been assisting by providing housing, healthcare and educational grants since 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 into 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.

- 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.
- The Mountain Fund was created to bring hope to children and women in the Himalayas by making their livelihood in a safe environment, by receiving education and healthcare. Founded in 2005, the Mountain Fund aims to create healthy, vibrant mountain communities where people have access to healthcare, education and economic opportunity in an environment where human rights are valued and respected. To achieve this goal, we sponsor community-based initiatives that prioritize respect for the local culture and the environment. The focus is to provide education by building schools. In mountain communities the suffering caused by poverty can be overwhelming as the needs for basic amenities far outstrip the local resources. Our approach to sustainable development is to first identify needs that can be fulfilled today, with very little funding and by local protagonists committed to the advancement of their communities. The Mountain Fund then works hand-in-hand with community leaders to develop and implement effective solutions to outstanding problems in their villages.
MIRAGLO works directly with the people in USA and Nepal
that are handling these projects and
assure you that your funds will go directly to the needy.

Health, healing and service has been a passion for Rauni Prittinen King, RN and Mimi Guarneri, MD, the founders of MIRAGLO Foundation. Our work in Holistic Integrative Medicine has taken us to many parts of the world where people are struggling to survive. In 2002 we traveled on a life transforming trip to the Tamil Nadu region of Southern India by invitation to serve in the creation of a small community hospital. We were humbled by the joy we received in participating in this project. We returned home from India with the desire to do more to serve those that are suffering both locally and globally.
We have strong backgrounds in health and healing and have gained significant experience in creating the Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine in La Jolla, California. We have been able to serve communities by funding programs, providing healthcare, equipment and education. In addition, we have been able to witness the transformation of communities through the creation of jobs, food programs, water sanitation, healthcare and education Together we founded Scripps Center for Integrative Medicine which is dedicated to prevention, early detection and treatment of disease through the use of global healing traditions.
We learned that we can prevent disease through the power of education and lifestyle change. We can heal people by providing heart centered guidance which supports body, mind and spirit while still providing high tech medical care. Diabetes, heart disease, osteoporosis, cancer, obesity and inflammation are all preventable, if people have proper information to transform their lives. Through innovative research outcomes we are able to validate and assist in providing and disseminating new information locally and globally, especially to under-served communities.
This knowledge and guidance empowers individuals to create change in their lives and leads to the transformation of communities one person at a time.
MIRAGLO Foundation was born to deliver this mission.
