Shevet Achim UK was set up in March 2008 to raise awareness in the United Kingdom of Shevet Achim in Jerusalem – a non-profit organisation dedicated to saving the lives of Arab children with congenital heart defects by providing treatment in Israeli medical centers.

Shevet Achim is changing hearts – and minds – in a tense region of the world. One of our aims is to inform the British public about the “good news’’ of bridges of reconciliation and understanding being built between the Arab and Jewish communities through Shevet Achim. Another of our objectives is to invite people to sponsor in part, or in total, the costs of bringing Muslim children with major heart defects into Israel for treatment, these children coming primarily from Gaza, Iraq and Syria.

The following links may be of help

The name Shevet Achim is taken from the Hebrew of Psalm 133, which says:
How good and how pleasant for brothers to dwell together in unity…
For there the LORD commanded the blessing— life forevermore.
