Wherever the art of medicine is loved, there is also a love of humanity.

ABOUT THE
FOUNDER

Dr. Swaiman Singh is the visionary force behind the Five Rivers Heart Association, an esteemed Humanitarian and Transplant Cardiologist at the Mayo Clinic, in Rochester, Minnesota. 

In 2012, driven by a profound dedication to public service, Dr. Singh founded the 5 Rivers Heart Association, headquartered in California. His goal was to pioneer innovative methods for delivering cost-effective medicine in India, establishing medical care in underserved regions across northern India. The organization’s mission is to anticipate and prevent diseases through implementation of evidence-based health policy.  

During the tumultuous times of 2020-2021, which was marked by global challenges, including the COVID-19 pandemic, there were significant agricultural protests in India and globally. 

Witnessing the urgent medical needs and the lack of accessible healthcare and education among protesting farmers, Dr. Singh made a pivotal decision. Inspired by his family’s farming legacy and commitment to community service and education, he traveled to Delhi in 2021 to provide medical care to protesting farmers.

Dr. Swaiman Singh’s journey back to India was more than a physical journey; it was a pilgrimage of the heart. He brought with him not just his medical expertise but a vision to create a more compassionate and accessible healthcare system.

Through the 5 Rivers Heart Association, Dr. Singh established a free medical hospital and community center, delivering not only immediate healthcare but also addressing broader well-being concerns. Beyond medical care, the team’s commitment extended to providing educational resources, hygiene essentials, housing, clean water, religious centers, sports activity, milk, and food supply apart from other essentials. This collaborative effort, involving over thousands of volunteers, effectively met the diverse daily demands of the local population.

After the conclusion of the protests in late 2021, Dr. Singh returned to the United States to resume his medical career, he continues to exemplify an unwavering dedication to healthcare equity and community welfare. 

5 Rivers Heart Association stands as a testament to Dr. Singh’s visionary leadership—a convergence of hope, care, resilience, unity, and compassion, mirroring the five rivers that nourish the lands of Punjab. The team continues to work towards health and education equity. 

Join us in our collective mission to create a more compassionate and accessible healthcare system for all.
