ABOUT

We mend hearts regardless of race,  religion, gender, nationality or financial status.

Save a Child’s Heart is an Israeli-based international non-profit organization with the mission of improving the quality of pediatric cardiac care for children in developing countries and creating centers of competence in these countries. We were founded by DR. AMI Cohen in 1995 at the Wolfson Medical Center in Holon, Israel.

Volunteer Opportunities

Our volunteer opportunities provide a behind-the-scenes look into the Save a Child's Heart Children’s Home. Volunteers are responsible for organizing games and activities for the children, as well as acting as a friend and a familiar face. Volunteers are crucial for providing care and emotional support to the kids and their families during their stay in Israel, pre- and post-surgery.
