On Valentine’s Day, a number of CAMERA-supported groups ran events raising awareness about Save a Child’s Heart (SACH), SACH is an incredible Israeli charity that offers free heart surgeries to children from the Middle East and around the world, providing operations to children from poor regions of the world who otherwise would have no access to advanced medical treatment. To date, Save A Child’s Heart has saved more than 4000 children’s lives.
At Boston University, CAMERA-supported group BU Students for Israel set up a table on campus, where they gave out food and spread the word about SACH, telling the story of the incredible charity.
At New York University, CAMERA-supported group Realize Israel also held an event called “Spread The Love” to raise awareness about Save A Child’s Heart. In the middle of the cold New York winter, they gave out free hot chocolate, as they told students about the incredible impact SACH has had on so many lives.
Other campuses also held Israel-themed events on Valentines Day. At York University, CAMERA-supported group Israeli Students Association (ISA) tabled throughout the day, giving out roses and chocolates and engaging students, informing them about Israel and the events run by ISA on campus. Generally on Valentine’s Day, people show their love for the significant people in their lives. But these CAMERA-supported groups also showed their love for the significant country in their lives – Israel!
