Angiography is a test which is recommended by doctors after doing all the preliminary tests to check the blockages in the coronary arteries of the heart.
Till date we did around 51 angiographies and out of which 40 people requires further treatment i.e. Angioplasty or Bypass Surgery. To support these patients we require funds.
Hamdulay Heart Foundation (HHF) is Mumbai's only charitable trust dedicated to serving the underprivileged cardiac patients. They are leading a fight against the coronary heart disease in Mumbai, India.
“Using the best stents on the market brings the cost of an angioplasty up to a lakh. A bypass usually costs Rs2 lakh and an angiography costs around Rs15,000. We want the underprivileged or those below the poverty line to avail the treatment for free,” he said.
The foundation helped 55-year-old Munira Begum, who underwent an angioplasty. “After she was diagnosed with coronary artery disease, doctors advised her to undergo a single vessel angioplasty. The surgery costs Rs1.30 lakh, but we had only Rs15,000,” said her son Abdul Salam.
HHF wants to create lasting, positive change in lives of people who suffer from cardiac (heart) illnesses, act as a catalyst in healthcare charity and try to connect donor passion with patient’s treatment and heart health education in India.
HHF subsidizes cardiac surgery and other cardiac procedures for patients belonging to the economically weaker sections of our society and helps them to get quality treatment. Dr. Hamdulay spreads awareness by publishing information and distributing it to the masses regarding the importance of prevention of heart disease and early diagnosis and intervention.
Dr Hamdulay started the Hamdulay Heart Foundation in the fond memory of his mother who had a deep affection for the underprivileged – so her spirit of generosity remained alive even after she was gone. The foundation gives heart check-ups and life saving-treatment for free or at highly subsidized rates to the needy.
