Yes! We support them via the Heart Support Fund, which offers financial aid of up to $20,000 to defray the cost of a mechanical heart device or heart transplant/surgery. We also provide monthly relief of $300 to $800 for up to six months to help patients who are unable to return to work immediately after suffering a heart condition or surgical procedure. Other areas of assistance include transportation subsidy for hospital follow-up visits and Blood Pressure (BP) monitors.
SHF commits around $300,000 per year to help these patients and this is one of the many SHF programmes and services that need your generous support! Proceeds from this campaign will go to supporting our heart health awareness programmes and support for our needy heart patients and their families.
Thank you for your generosity and wishing you great hearty health!
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.
