About Us

The Group: FAiTh – Fight Against Thalassemia
The FAiTh group is dedicated to support, serve and love people with Thalassemia and their families. We intend to create a general, massive awareness about the illness and motivate people to support Thalassemia patients.

The Mission
Our core mission is to educate public about Thalassemia and its effects on society, identify its cure and treatment, support the patients in every sector, enhance their quality of life and develop an effective channel between patients and supporters/donors.

The Team

  • Salman Mehmood – Founder:

The idea of developing an online medium to facilitate people and families with Thalassemia with information and support came from Salman. Salman was a 24 year old Thalassemic. Salman was the developer of this website. He is no longer among us, but his cause will now be lead by his sister Ayesha Mehmoood and his cause will keep him alive.

  • Ayesha Mehmood – Official Spokesperson:

She is sister of Salman, she is also thalassemic patient. She manages our blood bank, guide people who call us or email us for help regarding blood needed anywhere in Pakistan, along with Farman Ahmed she arrange blood camps as much as possible, she also manages content on this blog and marketing about blood donation camps and registrations.

  • Farman Ahmed – Lead Coordinator & Facilitator:

A qualified engineer and one of the earliest members, Farman Ahmed, has been organizing neighborhood blood donation campaigns over the last five years to make sure that Thalassemic’s have the precious blood they need to survive. Even though these blood drives were successful, he felt that more was needed. Farman is responsible to hold public campaigns for the collection of blood, and facilitate coordination between Sponsors/donors and effected families. He can be reached at:

    Dear Ayesha,
    ilive in canada n i heard abt salman from my younger brother residing in ejypt.we both discussed him n we both have same feelings abt him as we lost our brother again.
    yes we too r from the sufferers n we lost our elder brother at the age of 22 in yr 2000.he had ACUTE LEUKEMIA(white cell cancer of blood).
    May ALLAH give salman the highest place in JANNATUL-FIRDOUS.
    And MAY ALLAH bless u n ur parents n give u the courage to continue his great mission.AMIN.

  5. It is a pleasure to meet you here Ayesha. I am also blogging on support for blood transfusions and bone marrow transplant patients at http://support4bloodtransfusion-bmtpatients.blogspot.com/

    My efforts are really quite preliminary but I am also affected by blood disorders. My daughter was diagnosed with a rare blood disorder and she has had to have two bone marrow transplants in a span of 2 years. She is 6 years old now and with the Grace of Allah, once again on the road to recovery.

    I am creating awareness about policies to prevent blood disorders and also to create a reliable bone marrow transplant centre in Pakistan…because we were not able to find these facilities in Pakistan.

    I would really appreciate if you could take some of your valuable time to visit my site and ask me any questions you may have about bone marrow transplants etc.

    I have lost some wonderful friends and children of friends to Leukemia and complications of BMT so I can well understand the grief of losing your brother. May Allah rest his soul in peace. Ameen. And may Allah make you even more successful in your noble endeavours. All the very best.

    Slam Aysha
    Unlukily this disease is growing very rapidly in our country, though me n my wife gone through Electrophorses tests, my wife was a career but i was normal declared but unfortunatley our beloved doughter is declared as Tahalecimia Major, so we undergone again for the test n found that we both are minor.
    this is really a very unprofessional attitude of the Lap who declare me normal otherwise we must have gone through some other precuasions, u may know.
    dear sis there is another of my cuzin who died of this beatle disease. i am very upset n my wife too, what u suggest us to do??
    we althou registered with “Jamela Sultana Foundatiion”
    and what u suggest to do with that Lab??
    anxiously w8ing for ur reply.
    Jawad

  15. Jawad: I wonder which lab did that mistake, a single mistake can cause so many problems they don’t understand.

    Don’t be sad and upset please, there are thalassemia major who are married have kids, living healthy life.., you still have chances and you still have more hope than us, your daughter is very young am sure, you can go for bone marrow transplant.

    You can report about the lab I guess, though I don’t know how but you can write about it.

    Let me know how and where I can of any help.

    Best Regards!
