SAVE A CHILD'S HEART

HEARTFELT COURAGE

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.

– Dr. Sagi Assa, Wolfson Medical Center
