International Thalassemia Day 2015

FAiTh President Ayesha Mehmood was invited as a guest speaker by Hope Of Life on 8th May 2015 for seminar on thalassemia awareness at The Islamia University of Bahawalpur, Bahawalpur.

After seminar she visited thalassemia ward at Bahawalpur Victoria Hospital, met patients & parents there.. spent some time with them and shared information / knowledge among them about how to manage life with thalassemia.

It was saddening to see the condition of patients there, not even a single hematologist was there, 3 to 4 kids were on each bed and sadly patient & parent both had almost no knowledge about thalassemia. Not even about hemoglobin & ferritin
