A blood disorder passed down through families (inherited) in which makes an abnormal form of haemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen. The disorder results in excessive destruction of red blood cells, which leads to anaemia. There are more than 1000 patients in Haripur (Pakistan) & its surrounding areas, who are suffering from Thalassemia. A debilitating health condition with patients having an average life expectancy less than 20 years, & many others dying without a diagnosis, Thalassemic patients need URGENT CARE!!
What we are doing ?
In this contention Save The Mothers Trust opened a Thalassemia centre in March 2010, SMT aims to achieve quality-assured blood transfusions & provide a good standard of medical care. SMT has commenced this journey with very few assets but many hopes. Now in practical circumstances, SMT is not only a ray of life for these poor sufferers but also a vehicle for education for the affected families about this deadly disease through printed material & individual counselling. This allows parents to provide better care regularly for their children. With limited resources & a constantly increasing number of patients, Save The Mothers Trust is experiencing some very critical problems in the continuation of provision of services.
