Our Campaign Storyends 31 May 2021, 11:59 PM
Heart disease is the leading cause of death in Singapore, accounting for over 29% of deaths in 2019. Your support and contribution are crucial - it will help to prevent and reduce disability and death due to cardiovascular diseases and stroke.
With your kind support, Singapore Heart Foundation (SHF) will continue to play an increasingly important role in saving lives and promoting heart health in Singapore through the public outreach programmes.
I am Somnath Adak and I have been associated with SHF since 2019. I am a regular donor and an active volunteer with SHF. I have started this fundraising campaign to promote heart health to you, your family and your loved ones.
I invite you to come forward and contribute generously towards SHF and its beneficiaries. Your kindness will help SHF build a heart-healthier nation for generations to come!
With love for Heart, Somnath & Ekta

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.
