Seniors Bring Joy and Companionship to African Children Awaiting Heart Surgeries in Israel

Our seniors on Neshama recently spent time volunteering with the SACH (Save A Child's Heart) organization in Israel.

Yehonatan A. writes: "SACH is a renowned Israeli nonprofit organization dedicated to providing life-saving cardiac care to children from developing countries. Founded in 1995 by Dr. Ami Cohen, an Israeli pediatric heart surgeon, and supported by a team of medical professionals, SACH's mission is to offer high-quality, cost-free cardiac treatment to children suffering from congenital and rheumatic heart diseases."

"The organization operates primarily at the Wolfson Medical Center in Holon, Israel, where it conducts complex pediatric cardiac surgeries, interventions, and post-operative care. SACH also conducts medical missions to countries around the world, providing training and expertise to local medical teams and identifying children in need of treatment. After learning about the organization, we spent time with children from Africa who are awaiting life-saving heart surgeries, bringing joy and companionship to their usually mundane schedules."
