EVENT DATE: Oct 18, 2012
Dear Friends and Family,
In just a few days time, we will be climbing Africa's highest mountain to raise funds for Save a Child's Heart - an incredible organization that provides sick children from developing countries with world-class, life-saving cardiac care. They really are saving lives and we are proud to be supporting this organization!
Please donate today to help us reach our fundraising goal!
Save a Child’s Heart (SACH) is an Israeli-based international humanitarian project, whose mission is to improve the quality of pediatric cardiac care for children from developing countries who suffer from heart disease and to create centers of competence in these countries. SACH is totally dedicated to the idea that every child deserves the best medical treatment available, regardless of the child's nationality, religion, color, gender or financial situation.
SACH is motivated by the age-old Jewish tradition of Tikkun Olam – repairing the world. By mending the hearts of children, regardless of their origin, SACH is contributing to a better and more peaceful future for all of our children.
The SACH mission is achieved through:
Providing life-saving cardiac surgery and other life saving procedures for children from developing countries at the Wolfson Medical Center in Holon, Israel;
Providing a full outreach training program for the medical personnel from these countries in Israel;
Leading surgical and teaching missions to partner countries in the developing world;
Holding pre-operative and follow-up cardiology clinics in Israel and abroad.
