Emergency Relief Assistance

Some patients are the sole breadwinners in their respective families. After being caught unawares by the sudden occurrence of their cardiac condition, these patients may be unable to resume their former jobs after treatment, and may face difficulty finding a replacement job. Others may also suffer a loss of income due to taking time off from work to attend cardiac rehabilitation programmes or routine doctors’ follow-up appointments.

To help such patients adjust during these periods of income loss, SHF offers emergency relief assistance. Under this scheme, SHF provides $800 per month for a maximum period of six months and, on a case-to-case basis, up to another three months for each patient following the treatment of their heart condition.
