Save a Child’s Heart Foundation is committed to saving children’s lives by improving the quality and accessibility of cardiac care. We work closely with our partner in Israel to provide free, life-saving surgery to children from developing countries and to train doctors and other medical team members from these countries to return home with the skills to establish independent cardiac centres.
About Our Charity
Save a Child's Heart (SACH) is one of the world’s most significant examples of global, humanitarian medicine.
To date we have provided care to over 3,400 children from 48 countries in Africa, Asia, Eastern Europe, the Caribbean, South and Central America and the Middle East.
Many of our children come from areas affected by war and nature such as Iraq, Haiti, Sri Lanka and the Palestinian Authority.
For the vast majority of our patients, every penny of their medical costs are covered by Save a Child's Heart and its partners, from the moment a child comes under our care until they have fully recovered- even if they require a lifetime of check-ups.
More than 80 doctors, nurses and other medical team members have been brought to the Wolfson Medical Centre for training with SACH. This enables SACH to expand its impact, as the doctors who receive training return home better equipped to treat children on their own.
The ultimate goal of SACH is to create centres of competence in developing countries so that children can be treated independently in their own communities.
SACH is completely dedicated to the idea that every child deserves the best medical treatment available, regardless of nationality, religion, gender or financial consideration.
What People Are Saying
"To whomever will listen, it is with joy we share true stories of the unconditional humanitarian outreach and skill of the SACH team to better the lives of thousands of children from many countries. The health and care of one’s child supersedes any other differences that may exist."
