KUALA LUMPUR: Charity organisation affiliated with the National Heart Institute, IJN Foundation (IJNF), has disbursed financial aid of approximately RM3.5 million to 124 heart patients seeking treatment and surgery over the past year.

IJNF, in a joint statement with poultry egg producer, QL Resources Bhd (QL), today said the financial aid was to subsidise the medical expenses of poor, needy and deserving patients.

"IJN Foundation relies heavily on donations from caring organisations and individuals to ensure sufficient funds are available when required," the statement said.
