Walking into the SACH house was an experience I will never forget. I was immediately greeted with a hug by a girl (who I would later learn is Delice from Rwanda) as well as waves and excited shouts from many other children who, although I did not know it then, would forever change my life….

I think I read somewhere down a LinkedIn-sponsored clickhole that men will apply for a desired position if they meet ~60-70% of the listed requirements for the job, whereas women will only apply if they meet 100% of the listed requirements. With this statistic in mind, I applied for the medical internship at Save-a-Child’s Heart….

I am still digesting my experience at SACH, but I will attempt to describe my two-week medical internship in a concise post. The first thing I heard was laughter as I walked through the gates and into a bustling scene at the Children’s Home. Once inside, I was met by a smiling Delice who invited…

In 2015, I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit Save A Child’s Heart with my summer camp and learn about the organization, as well as volunteer with the children for a day. The second I walked out of the welcome gates that afternoon, I texted my parents and told them that no…

In a world full of violence, chaos and political despair, Save a Child’s Heart is an organisation which I believe is restoring the faith and hope in the kindness and goodwill of humanity. Save a child’s heart (SACH) is an Israeli-based NGO that provides life-saving cardiac surgeries totally free of charge for children from less…

I recently had the opportunity to travel to Israel to volunteer at Save a Child’s Heart (SACH). But before I describe my experience let’s rewind back to last Fall when I became great friends with an individual through Guelph Hillel. Before I even got to know her very well, she couldn’t stop talking about SACH….

As my flight landed in Tel Aviv, Israel after more than 10 hours of travelling from Toronto, Canada, I felt both excitement and nerves about what the next two weeks would have in store during my medical elective with Save a Child’s Heart at the Wolfson Medical Centre in Holon, Israel. Having just completed my…
