The power of many to change.
Every day, 16 people die from cardiovascular disease (heart diseases and stroke) in Singapore. Cardiovascular disease accounted for 29.5% of all deaths in 2016. This means that nearly 1 out of 3 deaths in Singapore, is due to heart diseases or stroke.
"For many, the expenses for treatment is not affordable especially when the bread winner of the home is affected. There is limitation for the Government to reach and help every individual. Our kind hearts can help their troubled hearts. My father was a heart patient and experienced the agony. I am already supporting the Singapore Heart Foundation with regular monthly contribution." - Sibi

About The Charity
The death toll from COVID-19 continues to rise at an alarming rate, and early studies have confirmed that those who suffer from heart disease and diabetes appear to be more vulnerable in becoming severely ill with the virus. This reinforces the importance of taking care of one's heart health. As you self-isolate and spend more time at home, we urge you to take care of your heart health. At the same time, we appeal to your generosity and hope that you can support by donating.
The Singapore Heart Foundation (SHF) is a social service agency at the forefront of the battle against heart diseases in Singapore.
Since its inception in 1970, SHF is constantly promoting good heart health so as to prevent cardiovascular disease later in life, via life-saving & community outreach programmes. At the same time, the Foundation also provides financial assistance to needy heart patients through the Heart Support Fund.
The funds raised are used by SHF for its operations and life-saving programmes aimed at promoting preventive measures against heart disease to the public; supporting community-based research aimed at gaining a better understanding of the landscape of heart disease in Singapore; getting more people trained in CPR+AED; providing rehabilitative and preventive care for recovering heart patients and at-risk individuals; as well as offering financial assistance to needy heart patients for emergency relief and treatment.
