Meet a heart. Raise a heart. Save a heart.

Our volunteer opportunities are designed to provide a behind the scenes look into Save a Child's Heart. Volunteers are responsible for organizing stimulating activities and acting as a friend and a familiar face to the children and their escorts during their stay in Israel, pre and post surgery. In addition, volunteers are exposed to different cultures and languages that they may not have a chance to experience, if not for being at Save a Child's Heart.

All volunteers take part in our #EndlessLev initiative, where they have the chance to share their experience and become ambassadors for Save a Child’s Heart. (click here for more info)

The minimum age for all volunteers is 18 years old. If you have any questions regarding this policy, please email Daniela at

Volunteer Experiences

“Balagan,” the Hebrew slang word for chaos or a mess, was just about the first word I heard upon entering 16 Haviva Reik. Since then, that word has continually echoed throughout the SACH house. “Don’t make balagan!” “YOU! Very, very big balagan!” I can hear those phrases resounding downstairs as I write this post from my bed. Let me be clear: “BALAGAN” is used for everything. And I mean everything.
