Israeli Charity Helps Save Four Year Old Gambian Boy’s Life

Four-year-old Sanusey from The Gambia became the 4,000th child to receive life-saving heart surgery through the Israeli charity Save A Child’s Heart, the organization announced Thursday.

Sanusey has been in Israel for the past month, together with 12 other children from Tanzania and The Gambia brought by the charity for heart surgery, it said in a statement.

After a successful hours-long operation at the Wolfson Medical Center in Holon in mid-May, the boy was reported to be recovering quickly.

Sanusey is recovering at the Save a Child’s Heart Children’s Home in Holon, the statement added. “He radiates confidence and it is a pleasure to see him play with the other children from all over the world, smiling, happy and finally healthy.”
