Be a part of a rescue mission
Our mission is to rescue children with life threatening heart diseases who are deprived of basic treatment in their home land ( Third World countries).
We, at The Edmond and Lily Safra Children’s Hospital at Sheba Medical Center have the capacity, advanced technology and expertise to save these sick children, and are commited to do so.
We will fly them accompanied by a relative and medical professionals to Safra Children’s Hospital in Israel where a leading medical team will receive them with the most advanced technology in the field.
The Journey of the Heart
Children will travel from their home land escorted by a relative and medical professionals, to a safe arrival in Safra Children’s Hospital.
Upon arrival they will undergo a thorough medical workup, including a full evaluation of their cardiac status, including an echocardiogram, and cardiac catheterization , cardiac CT or MRI if needed.
They will also be evaluated and treated by the appropriate multidisciplinary services of the Safra children's hospital when needed
The children will receive state of the art heart surgery, followed by a stay in the dedicated cardiac intensive care unit, and recovery in the step down unit.
After discharge, the children will be followed in the Pediatric Cardiology clinic until full recovery
Children will be enrolled to the rehabilitation program as needed , and all the families will take part in an educational program.
We will be here until the heart is safe and ready to go back home.
Housing for the child and relative will be supplied until the child is fully recovered and treated
The typical stay in Israel is expected to last a month.
