Thalassemia is a hereditary blood disorder characterized by abnormal production of hemoglobin. It requires lifelong blood transfusions to maintain hemoglobin and iron chelation therapy to prevent iron overload resulting from multiple blood transfusions. PWA’s Thalassemia Daycare Centre offers free of cost thalassemia management services to around 212 registered Thalassemia patients (annual management cost: PKR 345,000 – 393,000 per patient). It includes regular blood transfusions, costly iron chelation therapy, lab tests and supporting medications. We offer comprehensive management plans supervised by our competent Hematologist and highly trained team of Nurses and Medical Officers. We are also committed to spread awareness about thalassemia for its prevention and eradication by organizing different seminars and school campaigns.
PWA’s altruistic services would never have been possible without our donors’ endless support. We hope you will continue to succour us in our journey, because Only Together We Can Make a Difference!
