President FAiTh Ayesha Mehmood shared her life experience with the patients & parents.

Help Thalassemia Care Center established in 2012 have approx. 225 registered patients, they are trying their best to provide safe blood transfusions to their patients with the help of donors & limited resources. They have developed a software to manage all their patients’ record, data, and profiles. Currently they don’t have their own blood bank, they receive blood for their registered patients from Dow University Hospital, Jinnah Hospital & Muhammadi Blood Bank. Their new building is under construction where they will have their own blood bank. They are offering thalassemia screening, blood transfusions & iron chelation to all their registered patients free of cost.

We cut the cake with the little fellows and distributed gifts among them.

We are thankful to Help Thalassemia Care Center for giving us chance to interact with patients & parents, for the arrangements & support
