Association of Pakistani Descent Cardiologists of North America (APCNA) requests for your generous donation in this blessed season of giving. With the support of our members and their families & friends we have helped save countless lives in Pakistan. The much needed medical supplies; Catheters, Stents, Artificial Heart valves, Swan Ganz Catheters, Pericardiocenthesis trays, Permanent Pacemakers and Defibrillators have been distributed to hospitals across Pakistan by APCNA since 2004.
In collaborations with our colleagues at National Institute of Cardiovascular Diseases (NICVD), Tabba Heart Institute (THI), Indus Hospital (IH), Sheikh Zayed Hospital (SZH), Lady Reading Hospital (LRH) and Hyattabad Medical Center (HMC) hundreds of stents, pacemakers and defibrillators have been implanted in the patients who are truly deserving and cannot afford these life saving devices. Please take a moment to watch this video and see for yourself how people have been helped over the years.
We appeal to you in this Holy month of Ramadan to donate generously to this Fund Raising effort.
Your donation of $1000 will allow us to purchase a pacemaker or stents which may save the life of a poor patient. By saving that one person who could very well be the one person supporting several family members or more, you could be saving not just one person but many families at a time.
APCNA is a 501(C) 3 IRS Registered Non-Profit Organization. Your donation may also be Tax Deductible.
Please note on your donation if it is Zakat . We will then direct your donation accordingly to those patients who are Zakat eligible.
Join us in raising $100,000 dollars in this effort. We have over 100 Life Members in our organization, we can easily exceed this goal.
