BENEFITING: Save a Childs Heart Foundation US
SAVE A CHILDS HEART IN MEMORY OF DR AMI COHEN RA wrote -
We were a group of forty participants who landed in Israel, excited to explore our roots and develop a connection to the land. We came on a 10 day trip through Israel that was unlike any other gift we've ever received.
On one of our last days, we visited a small foundation, Save a Child's Heart, that is healing the world one child at a time. After playing with children we've decide to give back this gift of changing a life, to pay it forward from the gift we have received. Little did we know upon setting out that not only would our own lives be changed forever, but that we would also give life and a future to one child.
We've decided to do something amazing for a child that needs heart surgery, but can't afford it. We are raising money for a group of cardiac surgeons that donate their time and their expertise to help kids (and doctors) in disadvantaged communities all over the world. So far they have saved over 3,200 children in places such as Iraq, Angola, Romania, Palestinian Authority, Haiti and more.
Together let's bring another child to Israel for life-saving heart surgery.
