Nonprofit Overview

Causes: Health, Specialty Hospitals

Mission: The ultimate goal of Save A Child''s Heart is to set up cardiac surgical centers in those countries where open heart surgery is unavailable, by providing training to doctors & nurses, equipment and supplies. The short-term goal is to offer free surgical care to as many children as possible from these countries at our medical center in Holon, Israel.

Results: SACH has treated thousands of children from 43 developing countrires around the world.

Programs: The program provides lifesaving heart surgery for more than 200 children a year from developing countries. It costs $10,000 to save the life of one child, and this includes all hospital costs and room and board in our Children's Home. The medical team volunteers its time and services.

This is an amazing organization that does so much good. They have low overhead, are very transparent and are dedicated to their mission. I have nothing but respect for the Save a Childs Heart Foundation and hope they ill grow exponentially in the future.

I've worked for Save a Child's Heart for almost two years. This is an amazing organization that works non-stop to save the lives of children in need. Working in the Israeli office allowed me to meet the children that have come for treatment. It is amazing to see them arrive sick and tired, and leave laughing and jumping around. As a worker, I also had the opportunity to travel to Zanzibar with the doctors on a Medical Mission and see first hand the amazing work SACH does, not only in saving lives of children but also in training doctors from developing countries, so they can continue the work back home.

This is an organization that literally saves lives every week. Children arrive who are sick and for somehow unentitled to the miraculous gifts of childhood, but by the time they leave they are able to run, play, tease, and enjoy life. This is not only because of the medical care they receive here, but also because of the nurturing care and love they are given by the many volunteers before, during, and after their surgical treatments. People come together here, and children leave healed and happy. It happens every week, and every week I become more and more inspired by the Save A Child's Heart Cause.
