Default Save A Child's Heart

Hi everyone!

I just came back from Israel a few weeks ago, and while I was there, I had the opportunity to help with an Israeli humanitarian project called Save A Child's Heart (SACH). SACH helps children who suffer from heart problems in developing countries all over the world. The best thing about SACH is it is "totally dedicated to the idea that every child deserves the best medical treatment available, regardless of the child's nationality, religion, color, gender or financial situation" ( http://www.saveachildsheart.org/). Even as war rages on in Gaza, Palistineans like three-week old Jafar from Gaza (see link below) continue to recieve heart treatment, inspite of some contesting beliefs.

SACH also has chapters in the states as well. One of which is for the NY area. There is an information meeting that I was thinking about attending on Thurs 29th in NYC from 7-8 pm. If any one is interested, please email me: emcclayt@drew.edu
Here's a little more info about the event:

Although SACH is not trying to make a political statement, I think that it is one small, yet quite admirable step, towards peace in the middle east .

Thanks,
Libby
