What we do to Save a Child's Heart

Surgery + care

Save a Child’s Heart (SACH) is an Israeli-based international humanitarian charity, providing life-saving heart surgery and follow-up care for children from developing countries regardless of their race, religion, gender, nationality, or financial status.

Educating doctors

Save a Child’s Heart trains medical personnel from partner sites around the world in all facets of pediatric cardiac care. Over 100 medical team members from all over the world have been trained by SACH in Israel.

Medical missions

Save a Child’s heart sends medical teams to partner sites around the world in order to diagnose, teach and perform life-saving heart surgery.

We mend hearts, regardless of race, religion, gender or nationality

Save a Child’s Heart  saves lives by improving the quality and accessibility of cardiac care for children. Through our programs in Israel, we provide life-saving cardiac treatment to children from developing countries and train health care professionals from these countries to have the skills to deliver quality care in their home communities.

Every day a child from a developing country is saved in the pediatric cardiac surgical unit at the Wolfson Medical Center in Holon, Israel, where the Save a Child’s Heart medical facilities are based. Thousands of children from developing countries are alive today because of a small group of medical professionals who volunteer their time and expertise to perform cardiac surgery and train medical personnel.
