Surat: The Round Table India and Ladies Circle India together with The Wishing Factory organized a blood and food donation campaign to help patients suffering from Thalassemia.
The blood donation camp was held at Florence and Star Galaxy Society in Vesu area. There were around 65 registrations for the donation and more than 45 people donated blood and money for the noble cause.
In the Covid-19 pandemic, the Thalassemia patients have to bear the brunt of searching for blood donors, such organisations have joined hands to provide relief.
Thalassemia warriors require blood transfusions every 15 to 17 days, but the lack of blood makes it difficult for them to have a safe and healthy transfusion. With many families losing their source of income, it has become increasingly difficult for them to afford the expensive treatment, such donation drives are a blessing in disguise.
