Meet the doctors trained by SACH



Free weekly clinic for Palestinian children

The Wolfson Medical Center also hosts a cardiology clinic every Tuesday for children from the
Palestinian Authority. These children are referred to the Save a Child’s Heart program by a dozen cardiologists from throughout Gaza and the West Bank. The children arriving at this clinic are there for examination and evaluation and, pre and post operative care.

The cardiology clinic is held with the cooperation of Shevet Achim, a Christian organization based in Jerusalem. They assist in the coordination of the children’s arrival with the Palestinian and Israeli Authorities, and also arrange the transportation of the children to and from the clinic. This clinic is also part of The Heart of the Matter Project that brings together Palestinians and Israelis by providing cardiac care to Palestinian children and outreach training programs for physicians from the Palestinian Authority. Since 1995, more than 5,000 Palestinian children have been examined at the weekly cardiology clinic. For us, mending hearts and building bridges go hand in hand.

Save a Child's Heart is embarking on its biggest project yet, to build an International Pediatric Cardiac Center at the Wolfson Medical Center , which will serve as a Children’s Hospital.
