Honduran Child arrives for Heart Treatment

Save a Child's Heart, Israel welcomes a child from Honduras!

This week John Marcus, a 10 year old boy from Honduras arrived with big brown eyes and amazing smile. Marcus lives in Tegucigalpa, the Capital of Honduras, in a small apartment with his mother and 11 year old brother. His heart disease was discovered during pregnancy and since birth he has had several fainting episodes and periods of rapid heartbeats. John and his mother found out about Save a Child’s Heart through the ambassador of Honduras in Israel who is a friend of the family. 

With John's arrival, the number of countries of children treated by SACH increased to 46!

Since the beginning of 2013 SACH has:
