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…

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…

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…

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….

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…

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…

Over the last recent year, I worked as a preschool teacher in a classroom with children ages 3-4 years old.  While I found much joy and a sense of pride in my work as a teacher, I felt that something was missing. I knew I needed a career change.  I wanted to help others in…

Riley Noik

I wasn’t exactly sure what to expect when I walked into the SACH house for my first shift.  Naturally I was a bit nervous and a little apprehensive. Although I was confident in my abilities to interact with children, I couldn’t help but think, “what if they don’t like me?” What if we couldn’t even…
