I began writing this blog post on my 12-hour flight back to the United States after five months of being away from home. Over the course of those five months of interning with Save a Child’s Heart, I made connections with all of the children in the home that are unlike anything else. While thinking…

It was on my Birthright trip that I first heard of Save a Child’s Heart (SACH). We stopped at the children’s home for a few hours of play, fun, and to learn about the organization. I never imagined that just 3 years later, I would be afforded the opportunity to intern with SACH as a…

This past January I travelled to Israel and for two weeks I had the pleasure of being a medical intern with Save a Child’s Heart at Wolfson Medical Center in Holon, Israel. I am in awe of the SACH team and the humanitarian goodness they fill their day to day with. As a medical intern…

This post is dedicated to the SACH Moms, who have travelled across the world with the hope of giving their child another chance at life. Even as they smile with glee when music from their country blasts throughout the Home, or proudly share their foods and traditions, I see the fear and longing in their…

Hi! My name is Shier Ziser and I’m a final year medical student from University College London in the U.K. By the time you’re reading this I may have hopefully graduated to being Dr Ziser . As a U.K. medical student, I am obligated to undertake a 6 week medical internship abroad or at a…

Coming to the SACH house, I expected to play with and maybe even bond with some kids, but what truly surprised me were the bonds I created with the mothers. When we think of SACH, we think of the children being saved, but it is important to recognize that the child’s illness and recovery affect…

  In 2010, two years out of undergrad, I decided to leave my business consulting job in pursuit of a medical degree. As I had not taken any courses other than Bio (for non-premed majors), the first step would be to enroll in a post-baccalaureate premedical program. Because I hadn’t completed any meaningful clinical work…

As part of my final year of medical school I had the opportunity to undertake an elective rotation with SACH for 6 weeks. For the first 2 weeks of my stay I also had the bonus of staying in the SACH home, where I was immediately welcomed by smiling faces and bubbling personalities upon my…

There are few things in life that stand out and stick with you forever. Our experience at SACH is on that list and we will never forget the 6 weeks we spent volunteering there. This was the most concrete expression of tzedakah that we have been a part of and we are so grateful for…

This summer, I was fortunate enough to spend two weeks as a medical intern with Save a Child’s Heart in Israel. Having just completed my second year of medical school I was grateful for some much-needed vacation time, along with the opportunity to experience the Israeli healthcare system. As a medical intern, I lived in…

  This experience rose above and beyond any expectations I had, and I am in awe of all members of this unique organization. I started out the program thinking that I would spend my mornings in the hospital, and afternoons exploring Tel Aviv. That plan immediately changed once I met the children staying at the…

I happened upon Save a Child’s Heart for the first time when I was just 15 years old. After spending extensive time doing in depth research into this incredible organization, I made a promise to myself that, when old enough, I would travel to Israel and become a member of the SACH family. So this…
