I have been involved with Save A Child’s Heart since 2010; in that time, I have gotten to know these seventy-odd children and their mamas on a very personal level. While I may have had a small impact on the lives of these children and their mamas during their time with Save A Child’s Heart, they have had a lasting impact on me.

These are the mamas whose hands I have held tight whilst their child was in surgery; whose ugali and beans I have eaten straight from the cooking pot (before being heaped high onto my plate); and who I have waved off at the airport, as they excitedly return home to their friends and family with their now-healthy child in tow.

These are the children whose first steps I have watched; who have asked for me from their bed in ICU straight after surgery; and whose smile I have witnessed the first time that they realise that they can run and play like any other child without feeling pain any longer.

These children and their mamas have helped to make Save A Child’s Heart the most important part of my life.

Thank you for your continued support of Save A Child’s Heart and their Give Your Heart Out campaign, and for allowing me to have my life enhanced by these children and their mamas from the other side of the world.

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!

Save a Child's Heart

 
 

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.

Hi Jade I was at your tea and got why you love SACH, It struck me that although it is apolitical - the impact of their work has the potential to have positive consequences even politically. Thanks for introducing me to their work!
