National Stroke Association of Malaysia (NASAM)


What would you do if you wake up and find one side of your body paralysed? 

Back in the olden days, the National Stroke Association of Malaysia (NASAM) was established in 1996 and is the first non-profit organisation in South East Asia. It provides rehabilitation and support to stroke survivors and their families to regain a normal life according to the rehabilitation programme. Founded by Janet Yeo, she was inspired to form NASAM through her experience and remarkable recovery from her stroke in 1995. Her story inspired and drew an overwhelming response from the public, especially among stroke patients who want to learn the methods that led to her recovery. 

The visionary aim of NASAM is to establish a stroke rehabilitation centre in every major city  throughout Malaysia in order to care for stroke patients and survivors.
