Surgery + care

Since 1995, Save a Child's Heart has treated more than 4,400 children suffering from congenital and rheumatic heart disease from 55 developing countries. The annual number of children we treat has grown dramatically from 48 cases in 1996 to over 300 in 2016.

The children we help are treated at the Wolfson Medical Center and housed at the Legacy Heritage Children’s Home of Save a Child’s Heart, both located in Holon.

Approximately 50% of the children are from the Palestinian Authority, Jordan, Iraq and Morocco, more than 40% are from Africa, and the remainder are from Asia, Eastern Europe and the Americas.

Incredibly, in today’s modern age, at any given moment there are thousands of children suffering from heart disease around the world who require our assistance.
