"Give Your Heart Out" Valentine's Day Campaign 2014

Alex K.

This past month I spent 3 weeks volunteering at the Save a Child's Heart house in Holon. I met so many wonderful people, from the adorable children to their warm and caring mothers to the inspiring staff at SACH.

I didn't really know what to expect, entering a house where so many sick children have been plucked from their homes to come have surgery, but I didn't expect to encounter such hope and excitement. SACH really works hard to foster such an atmosphere and I'm proud to say that as a volunteer, I was part of that effort.

I'd like to think that I had an impact on some of their lives. From Seyram, who became a puzzle champion (puzzles are huge at the SACH house) to Selemani who I think cried less when us volunteers were around (wishful thinking?) to Yulitha and Juliana and Irini and Iman and Kalab and David and Jenifa and Ayoub and Jofrey and Simon and Eliyas and Hikma and Aisha and Aiman and Laurentiu and there are just too many children to name. But I know that in reality, they probably had much more of an impact on me as I came to see not only how lucky I am to be healthy but how because of that, it's my responsibility, it's our responsibility, to help these beautiful children become healthy as well.

The Give Your Heart Out campaign, inspired by Valentine's Day, is the cornerstone of the Save a Child's Heart Young Leadership Program. Powered by a strong global community of students and young professionals, this annual campaign will raise $100,000 in 2014 to save 10 children!
