Save a Child’s Heart

  • The charity Save A Child’s Heart pays to send children from all over the world and their caregivers to Wolfson Hospital near Tel Aviv to perform cardiac operations. 

On Monday (12/19/11), Harry Rosenberg had his annual lunch with the director of the US branch of the Israeli charity Save A Child’s Heart, which brings kids to Israel for cardiac operations. They recently brought two kids from Haiti to Israel. They were malnourished and emaciated and had cultural difficulties due to their rural lifestyle.

  • Save a Child’s Heart (SACH) is an Israeli-based international humanitarian project, whose mission is to improve the quality of pediatric cardiac care for children from developing countries who suffer from heart disease and to create centers of competence in these countries. SACH is totally dedicated to the idea that every child deserves the best medical treatment available, regardless of the child’s nationality, religion, color, gender or financial situation. SACH is motivated by the age-old Jewish tradition of Tikkun Olam – repairing the world. By mending the hearts of children, regardless of their origin, SACH is contributing to a better and more peaceful future for all of our children.CLICK HERE For more information on Save a Child’s Heart.

 

Since 1995, Save a Child’s Heart (SACH) has treated more than 2,500 children suffering from congenital and rheumatic heart disease aging from infancy to 18 years of age from the “four corners of the Earth” –  over 40 countries where adequate medical care is unavailable.

The Children brought to Israel are treated at the Wolfson Medical Center in Holon and hosted at the Children’s home in nearby Azor

"I had a dream, there were many colors over my bed, then a very big hand came in the middle of the night. We flew to a far-off country and they gave me a new heart, and I could run and dance."

Save a child’s Heart’s (SACH) Heart of the Matter Project brings together Palestinians and Israelis by providing cardiac care to Palestinian children and outreach training programs for physicians from the Palestinian Authority (PA). Nearly a half of the total children treated by SACH come from the PA, and over 1,190 Palestinian children have undergone open-heart surgery since SACH’s founding.
