The Pfizer Malaysia-IJN Foundation Patient Assistance Program is a collaboration to provide treatment to needy heart patients seeking medical attention at the Institut Jantung Negara (IJN).
Since 2001, this program has benefited needy eart patients by providing funding which goes towards intensive care unit costs, drugs, surgical fees and post operation visits. We have, over five years, contributed more than RM1 million to this cause, becoming the single largest corporate contributor to this Foundation.
Among those who have benefited from this program are Neo Kim Peng, 37, a poor, sawmill worker and sole breadwinner for two school-going children, and Chumaran, a lorry driver, who had only RM1000 when he first went to IJN. Today, both are healthy and have returned to work to provide a better quality of life for their families. They both serve as living examples of how our organization cares enough to give them access to the treatment and medicines they need for a better life.
