How Your Donation Makes a Difference
There are 8000 Stroke Patients in Singapore. We have provided free programs for Stroke Survivors and their caregivers for the past 22 years. The programs enable them to have a better Life After Stroke
Your donations will fund Befriending Stroke Patients @ 7 hospitals, Life After Stroke, Move With Words (for Stroke Patients with Aphasia), Stroke Self Management Programs and Caregiver Support Group.
1 in 4 over the age of 25 will suffer a stroke. We all have a friend, a family member, a colleague or an acquaintance who is a stroke survivor. Let's give our support as they cope with stroke.
Your generosity and support help SNSA to sustain and expand our existing programs and start new programs to benefit even more stroke survivors and caregivers. All donations are greatly appreciated.
