The promoters of the foundation are a group of like-minded professionals from different fields, (three of the founding trustees being cardiac surgeons) who felt the pressing need to financially support heart patients from weaker sections of the society as well as to bring about an awareness about the preventive aspects of heart disease among the general public.
The idea was conceived by a couple of young cardiac surgeons who came across a number of poor heart patients needing urgent treatment during the course of their work and at heart camps that they conducted. They witnessed heart- rending instances of babies dying for no fault of theirs just because they were born to poor and ignorant parents who did not understand the implications of, nor could afford expensive heart surgery. Some of these did not have the money even to come to the hospital for check up and consultation. So they got together with a few like-minded individuals to form a charitable TRUST to reach out for these needy.
Later the foundation made tie ups with outstanding health institutions such as Manipal Heart Institute, Fortis Hospitals Bangalore, Shri Jayadeva Institute for Cardiac Sciences, BGS Global Hospital and Vikram Hospital in order to provide quality treatment to the poor.
