SACH touching lives in the Philippines Print E-mail

The Save a Child's Heart (SACH) International Photography Exhibition displayed at the Philippine Children's Medical Center in Quezon City on 9 March 2009.

This exhibition, featuring the photographers Natalie Behring, Jonah Mink, Sheila Shalhevet, Nati S Save hohat, Debra Silver, David Silverman and Gili Yaari, is making its way around the world, with five copies appearing throughout the United States, Canada, Europe, Australia, Asia and Africa. The Manila exhibition runs from 9 March - 16 March 2009.


The Save a Child's Heart's (SACH) ‘From Art to Heart’ International Photography Exhibition was officially launched on 27 February 2008 at the Ministry of Foreign Affairs in Jerusalem as part of Israel’s 60th anniversary celebrations.

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 centres of competence in these countries. SACH is dedicated to the idea that every child deserves the best medical treatment available, regardless of the child’s nationality, religion, colour, gender or financial situation.

Recently, the journey of Lyka, a eight month old Filipino born with a congenital heart disease, made headlines when Dr. Eldar Scneider from the Wolfson Medical Centre flew her and her mother to Israel to receive life saving surgery.

The exhibition is an insight into the incredible efforts of this team of dedicated medical professionals. It is an inside look at the lives they save, a beautiful and emotional journey.
