Children We Help
The Children brought to Israel are treated at the Wolfson Medical Center in Holon and hosted at the Children’s home nearby.
Since 1995, Save a Child’s Heart (SACH) has treated more than 3,000 children suffering from congenital and rheumatic heart disease aging from infancy to 18 years of age from the “four corners of the Earth” – 45 countries where adequate medical care is unavailable.
Approximately 50% of the children are from the Palestinian Authority, Jordan, Iraq, Syria and Morocco; more than 30% are from Africa; and the remaining are from Asia, Eastern Europe and the Americas.
The annual number of children treated by SACH has grown dramatically from 48 cases in 1996 to 298 in 2012.
At any given moment there are thousands of children suffering from heart disease around the world who require our assistance.
