Save a Child’s Heart is the first Israeli organization to receive the United Nations Population Award in recognition of its humanitarian activities on behalf of children with heart disease around the world.

Taib noted: “The children’s group visit to Israel will create a deep humanitarian base of trust and cooperation between the countries. For many years we have been involved in saving the lives of young children from birth to adulthood to provide them with a new opportunity for a healthy life. The group will arrive in Israel and stay at the organization’s children’s home in Holon in preparation for the medical procedures they will undergo at the hospital. “
