Give the gift of a healthy heart

Your support can do wonders for those in need. “Bumrungrad Rak Jai Thai,” a charitable program created by the Bumrungrad Hospital Foundation,
in conjunction with Bumrungrad International, the Cardiac Children Foundation of Thailand and Thailand’s National Health Security Office (NHSO), welcomes donations from
the public in support of its efforts to help needy heart disease patients receive critical medical treatment.

The program provides free surgeries for needy Thai children and adults suffering from congenital heart defects and valvular heart disease, who lack the financial means or access to much-needed surgical treatments.

A typical surgery can cost around 500,000 baht.

With Bumrungrad surgeons and medical staff donating their time and medical supplies, the program has already served 319 patients from 2007 through the end of 2010 — more than halfway to reaching the program’s goal of 500 free surgeries.

If you would like to support the program, donations can be made by the following ways:

• Online at www.bumrungrad.com/onlinedonation;

• Via bank transfer to the Bumrungrad Hospital Foundation

(Bangkok Bank savings account # 197-0-111157, North Nana branch).

Please send a copy of the transfer confirmation to Bumrungrad’s accounting department (located on the hospital’s 4th floor) or fax a copy to    0 2667 2031
