Walking through the front gate of the Save a Child’s Heart home meant embarking on a new journey. Regardless of cultural background or religious affiliation, everyone is treated and greeted equally with open arms. I didn’t even make it to the front door before I was flooded with children, all smiling, all welcoming. It doesn’t…

Alex Khozin

My name is Alexandra Khozin and I was a part-time volunteer at Save a Child’s Heart. I cannot begin to express how unbelievable my experience at SACH truly was. I had signed up for this program a few months prior to my arrival because I wanted to give back to this incredible organization I had…

David Goldmeier

When people ask me what I thought of my time in the SACH house, I tell them that it was honestly the best experience of my life, by far. I say this because of all the previous experiences that I have had (volunteer or otherwise), none have ever exposed me to such a level of…

MAKING MY WAY TO THE HOLY LAND Last summer, my beautiful best friend, Brianna, told me about a place in Israel. She shared with me all the courageous mamas and the brave children who came from all over the world to get life-saving heart surgeries. It was with love in her eyes that convinced me to travel…

Kim Fulop

Two years ago, I entered the Save a Child’s Heart house for the first time. I was on my gap year and my program came to visit the house to play with the children for a couple of hours. Despite the fact that my gap year trip in Israel lasted six months, and I did…

Karni Baker

Being a full-time volunteer at SACH was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made in my life. It was the most special experience I’ve ever had, with or without the children here. At first, coming here was extremely nerve racking; being out of my comfort zone and not really having a clue what I’d…

Muquadam and Jade

Every child and mother that arrives to Save A Child’s Heart are courageous. They leave their village or their city, most of them for the first time, arriving to a country where the language, food, culture and people are different. They turn to one another for support while they wait anxiously to be called to…

A few days ago, I went through some photos I had in my phone (bellow), for me with amazing kids I met while volunteering in “Save A Child’s Heart”, they brought up so many memories and joy; that I had to write about my experience in “Save A Child’s Heart” and share it with everyone….

“Creativity takes courage” – Artist Henri Matisse. Matisse’s words are a way of life at Save a Child’s Heart, where I see courage every day. The children at Save a Child’s Heart come from foreign countries to undergo intensive cardiac procedures and during their time in Israel, they live at the SACH house. My name…

Thank you Terri!

Terri joined the Save A Child’s Heart family thirteen years ago when she joined the Save A Child’s Heart Medical team on a mission to China. The experience she had then was something that she carried with her and motivated her to come to Israel to volunteer at the Save a Child’s Heart Children’s Legacy…

Brianna McKiernan

The Save a Child’s Heart home is an integral part of this organization and serves a vital role in functioning as a “home away from home” for the children, nurses, mothers, and volunteers who live in it. It was my home for two weeks in July 2015 when I came to SACH as a full-time…
