SAVE THEIR LIVES
The Ministry of Health has outlined these following signs to indicate heart defects in infants:
The infant may display blueness of the skin/ blue baby syndrome since birth due to the high presence of blood without oxygen in the bloodstream.

We are supporting up to 20 patients that were diagnosed with heart defect to help them get urgent surgery if needed, treatment needs and their medical equipment.
The objective is to provide thousands of people a “second chance” to receive the care they require in order to live a better life.
As for the parents, detecting it as early as possible we can change the life of that child, his family, the community and the country itself.
A lot of kids with congenital heart disease are still in the waiting list for heart surgery.
At least RM50,000 is needed for every heart surgery to be done.
As for us, we can contribute and support their medical needs such as treatment cost and medicine.
