Before coming to SACH, I would have never imagined that only 2 short weeks would be so life-changing. From the moment I walked into the doors of the SACH house, I was immediately showered with hugs, kisses, smiles, and high fives from the kids. Their strength and bravery continuously amazed me every day – despite…

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…

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…

  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…

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…

As a third year medical student from the University of Glasgow, I didn’t know what to expect from my medical internship with Save a Child’s Heart (SACH). Being in a new place, in a new hospital where you don’t speak the language, and dealing with patients whose mother tongue is not English, was an intimidating…

Coming as a fourth year Medical School student from George Washington University School of Medicine to do a medical rotation with Save A Childs Heart (SACH) has been life changing. From a medical perspective, it was absolutely fascinating. I was involved in surgeries and the care of patients with rare conditions you often only read…

Preface: Save A Child’s Heart is an organization dedicated to the hearts of children from countries without access to the life-saving medical care they require.  They confront this issue by: traveling to countries and providing on site care; flying children and their families to Israel for care; and training physicians from countries where there is…

February 2017 I have spent two and a half weeks at the SACH Children’s Home and as well at the Wolfson Medical Center as a Medical Intern. Being a member of SACH Young Leadership in The Netherlands I was very excited to meet the people behind the scene, such as the nurses and the other…
