Society for the Sabah Heart Fund (SOSHF) was set up in 1981 with the Minister of Community Services Sabah, Toh Puan Hajjah Rahimah Stephens as its founder president. The society was officially registered and launched by the then Yang Dipertuan Negeri Sabah, the late Tun Adnan Robert in 1981. Our focus is to provide financial assistance for Sabahan heart patients who are unable to afford medical aid to undergo heart treatment.

Since our inception 30 years ago, we have already assisted more than 500 individuals through the generosity of contributors and the State Government of Sabah. We aim to do more…but we need your help. Medical treatment for patients cost an average of RM27,000.00 to RM30,000.00 and its almost impossible to send every patient in the waiting list. As the list of patients seeking treatment keeps growing, the SOSHF can only hope for more donations to pour in, thus ensuring a second chance of life to the less fortunate. Besides donations, the S.O.S Heart Fund raises funds from subscription and entrance fees, albeit the fact that subscriptions and entrance fees are minimal.

The S.O.S also receives grants from the Ministry of Social Services And Consumer Affairs through the Sabah Council of Welfare Services and at any one time, any donations, no matter how small is welcomed by the society. Help us make a difference on the lives of people in need of heart treatment.

Objective

The objective of the S.O.S Heart Fund is to assist those patients who need to have heart surgery and/or other medical or surgical either not obtainable in Malaysia or such of nature that it is considered by the Director of Medical Services to be in best interest of the patients that they be treated outside Sabah. Medical treatment for patients cost an average of RM27,000.00 to RM30,000 and it is almost impossible to send every patient in the waiting list.

Whilst the list of patients seeking treatment keeps growing, the S.O.S Heart Fund can only hope for more donations to pour in, thus ensuring a second chance of life to the less fortunate. The society depends on the public and government support to carry out its aims and objectives. To-date the S.O.S Heart Fund has sponsored over 500 patients. Most of the patients sponsored to the Institut Jantung Negara and Gleneagles Medical Centre, Kuala Lumpur. The S.O.S Heart Fund since it existent for 30 years to-date, is one of the new charitable/voluntary organization which doesn’t have any full time paid staff.

Hence, the administrative costs are kept very low. The S.O.S Heart Fund will continue to raise funds so that more people who cannot afford to go for further treatment and surgeries could be helped and have their second chance at living a better life.
