Save a Child’s Heart

An international non-profit venture that mends the hearts of children from developing countries and provides them with medical care, regardless of the child’s religion, gender, or nationality. The vision of the venture is to promote and improve the quality of life-saving heart treatment and follow-up care for children in developing countries and to create local, professional centers for care within these communities.

The Challenge

One in a hundred children born in the world suffer from heart failure. Congenital heart disease is caused by defects that occur before birth and are responsible for the death of more children in their first year of life than any other congenital disability. In many cases, the children can be operated and rescued, but children from developing countries where the necessary medical services are unattainable may not always receive these life-saving treatments.

The Opportunity

Since 1995 Save a Child’s Heart has treated and saved the lives of thousands of children suffering from congenital and rheumatic heart disease by improving the quality and accessibility of heart treatments for children. The children are treated at the Wolfson Medical Center, located in Israel.
Haim Taib, the president of Menomadin Foundation, joined the organization’s activity in 2009, bringing to Israel 110 children from Angola. Since 2017 Haim Taib has served as the president of Save a Child’s Heart.

The Impact

Saving the lives of over 5,460 children.

Training over 120 medical teams from developing countries.
Treating children from 62 countries around the world where adequate medical care is unavailable.
