Description of Organization

“Vision – To be a leading heart health movement and a household name in Singapore through educating and motivating the public, assisting those affected and supporting community-based research to better understand the landscape of heart disease in Singapore.

Mission – To promote heart health, prevent and reduce disability and death due to cardiovascular disease and stroke.

Core programmes and services involve heart disease prevention, resuscitation training and awareness, community based cardiac rehabilitation, and financial support for needy patients and community.”


Intended use of funds through the YFC programme

The funds raised will go towards supporting SHF programmes and services, as well as providing more support for our needy heart patients. Funds raised will go to ensuring we continue to provide highly subsidised programmes and to have the ability to expand our outreach and support to others in need.


Engaging and involving the YFC participants

For YFC teams that will be working with Singapore Heart Foundation (SHF), we hope to orientate them by inviting them to our centre for briefing, volunteers training, and when the opportunity arises, we can also attach these volunteers to work alongside our therapists, and healthcare professionals to better understand the work in SHF and to contribute in their own ways.
