We were then able to play with children who were either preparing for surgery or recovering from it. I played with a 12-year-old Ethiopian child named Eliyas. Eliyas is recovering strongly from his procedure and is preparing to go home in a few weeks. We talked about football (soccer) and he taught me some Amharic, his native language. We exchanged contact info and I really hope to keep in touch with him. I enjoyed learning about the history of Israel at the Yitzhak Rabin square and experiencing the charitable culture first hand thanks to Save a Child's Heart.
