Save a Child’s Heart
Côte d’Ivoire, 2020
Save a Child’s Heart reinforced the capabilities of Abidjan’s Institute of Cardiology, conducted a pediatric cardiology clinic and sent five Ivorian children to Israel for life-saving surgery and catheterization.
Millions of children around the world lack access to advanced cardiac care, without which their life expectancies are limited. Save a Child’s Heart’s goal is to provide the life-saving treatment they need, regardless of nationality, religion, race, gender or financial ability.
Save a Child’s Heart brings children from around the developing world to Wolfson Medical Center in Holon, Israel, where it provides life-saving cardiac surgery and catheterization. SACH also dispatches medical missions abroad to perform cardiac procedures and provide training for local medical teams.
Save a Child’s Heart conducts scheduled cardiology clinics to evaluate children, both before and after surgery and catheterization. It also brings physicians from developing regions to Israel for long-term specialized training, after which they return home with the skills required to offer a new level of professional care, creating centers of cardiac care competence so that children can be treated in their own communities.
