As long as children with rheumatic and congenital heart disease around the world continue to suffer without access to care, we will treat children, train medical professionals and raise the level of pediatric heart care worldwide, from our heart in Israel. From the children and parents with the courage to trust, to the doctors with courage to heal, we are Save a Child’s Heart.
They say “whoever saves a life saves the world." It is a daily pleasure to bring healing and peace to children’s hearts, and to be surrounded by the SACH community of unity and love.
More than 100 medical professionals based out of the Wolfson Medical Center in Israel participate in the day-to-day activities of Save a Child's Heart.
We are so happy to work as a team and be able to bring health to a children and their families in a time when disease is so prevalent and access to adequate healthcare, so limited.
SACH treats children suffering from congenital and rheumatic heart disease who have little access to care in their own countries. Together we can give them a chance at a healthy life.

For such a long time, cardiac surgery was like a mountain that could not be climbed. Now we are scaling that mountain.
My biggest motivation to be a doctor is that I can do something good for my people when I go home. I know I will go back as a better doctor to provide care and help train my colleagues so that even more people have access to quality care in Tanzania.
Currently, SACH is training 9 medical professionals in Israel from Zambia, Ethiopia, Tanzania, the Palestinian Authority and Gaza.
