Bringing up a Thalassemia child is very traumatic and emotionally draining experience. The parents and family need a strong emotional support to lean on. For the past 24 years Thalassemia & Sickle cell society has been a pillar of strength to parents and family members. The society has been successful in giving hope to its members through its programs and activities.
Screening programs to test the thalassemia status of individuals is undertaken by the society with the support of interested organizations and foundations. The Thalassemia and sickle cell society has by now completed screening in more than 1000 school going children in various schools.
If you, or the organization that you represent are interested in holding a screening or being screened yourself. Please contact us, from the link above.
