I have been volunteering with Save a Child's Heart since I arrived in Israel in October. This is a non-profit that brings children with congenital heart problems from all across the globe to Israel for lifesaving treatment.

Most of the children arrive without their own parents, in groups from their respective countries with a “host mom.” As a volunteer, we both comfort and play. Most of the kids do not speak any English or Hebrew, and so we rely mostly on non-verbal communication. This makes the relationships and connections that form so much more special. We play with trucks, legos, balloons, do various arts and crafts projects, kick a ball around, listen to music and dance and much, much more.

Each week I leave the center thinking about how thankful I am to both be in Israel and to know that I am contributing just a small piece of the huge difference that SACH provides in these children's lives.

Please consider making a donation to this outstanding organization.

Give Your Heart Out this Valentine's Day
 

Happy Valentine's Day from the children

Children we're saving

About this Campaign

An estimated 5.5 million children in developing nations around the world will die because the required heart surgery they need is unobtainable. 

 

Save a Child’s Heart (SACH) is an international non-profit organisation which provides life-saving cardiac care to children from developing countries, and offers comprehensive training to medical professionals from these countries.


The cost for SACH to save the life of a child is $10,000. From January 6th - February 28th 2015, the Give Your Heart Out: Valentine’s Day Campaign will be raising $120,000 to save the lives of 12 children in desperate need of heart operations.
