About this Event

Join Save a Child's Heart & Birthright as we present to you Hannah Wollan and Dr. Sagi Assa. We will hear from Hannah about her experiences on Birthright and the journey she has taken up to now. Later Dr. Sagi Assa will tell us all about Save a Child's Heart and life in Israel.

Hannah Wollan, CEO of Save a Child's Heart Australia.

From Volunteer to CEO. 7.5 years ago Hannah walked through the doors of the Save a Child's Heart Children's home in Holon, Israel. After that- everything changed for her. She left her profession in property and made a decision to dedicate her life and career to social impact and justice. Inspired by the incredible humanitarian work of Save a Child's Heart, she completed her Masters in Social Work and after that worked in both Darwin and Melbourne in Government, Youth Homelessness and Aged Care. She decided to explore social entrepreneurship, working for a start up charity and then for a social enterprise. Today, as the CEO for Save a Child's Heart Australia, she focuses on enhancing awareness, innovative fundraising practices, community engagement and inspiring the next generation to support Israel's humanitarian work.

Dr. Sagi Assa - Senior Pediatric Cardiologist & Head of the Interventional Pediatric Cardiology Unit

Dr. Assa studied medicine at Tel Aviv University’s Sackler School of Medicine. After graduation he completed a five year residency in pediatrics at the Wolfson Medical Center and was certified with high honors by the Israeli Board of Pediatrics. He then joined the Pediatric Cardiology Unit for a three year residency.

In 2012 Dr. Assa returned to Germany to undertake a two year fellowship in interventional pediatric cardiology at the Deutsche Herzzentrum Berlin sponsored by Save a Child’s Heart. He studied and worked as a pediatric interventional cardiologist beside Dr. Stephan Schubert in the cath lab, under the supervision and mentorship of Prof. Felix Berger. Upon his return to the Wolfson Medical Center, Dr. Assa joined the pediatric cardiology team as lead interventional cardiologist. At this time, he became a lot more involved in the Save a Child’s Heart program.

Dr. Assa is now a senior member of the Wolfson Medical Center’s pediatric cardiology team and in 2018 was appointed Head of Pediatric Interventional Cardiology. Dr. Assa is fully devoted to Save a Child’s Heart and has led several catheterization missions to Tanzania.
