Save a Child’s Heart
Improving cardiac care for children in developing countries
Save a Child’s Heart is an Israeli-based international non-profit organization with the mission of improving the quality of pediatric cardiac care for children in developing countries and creating centers of competence in these countries. We were founded by DR. AMI Cohen in 1995 at the Wolfson Medical Center in Holon, Israel.
The Waislitz Foundation provides three annual scholarships to budding physicians to increase their life-saving skills in order for them to return to their countries and have a positive impact on sick children in their home communities. The scholarship cost includes subsistence allowance and accommodation in Israel for each physician, round-trip airfare, local transportation costs, participation in international medical conferences and tutoring fees for the training department at Wolfson Medical Center.
