During the last twenty years Jonathan Miles who was originally from Canada  and founder of  Shevet Achim has worked tirelessly with Israeli doctors and medical centres to provide life changing heart surgery for hundreds of babies and children suffering from genital heart defects. The turmoil in the Middle East has brought changes to the work and now more children and their families are coming from Syria, Iraq and Kurdistan where they have recently set up a base. On a recent visit to Israel I had the privilege of  meeting Jonathan as well as some of the children and their mothers. for more details go to www.shevet.org  I have interviewed Jonathan over the years for my radio programme. The latest interview I  did with Jonathan  was whilst I was in Israel. You can hear the interview on my Middle East Report.
