Note: If you are not in Karachi then visit any Thalassemia Center in your city/country and donate blood on the same day… lets bring change together! =)
Alhamdulillah FAiTh [Fight Against Thalassemia] is gaining its place in people’s life, heart, mind and now it secured its position in TIF [Thalassemia International Federation] Magazine 🙂

As you all might have known FAiTh celebrated New Year and Quaid-e-Azam anniversary by conducting Blood Drive and Screening Camp.
So its time to announce the results, 25 people decided to attend the event, all of them were tested for Thalassemia, 5 were suspected, 1 has been confirmed as Thalassemia Minor, 16 people donated blood and not to forget all the donors were cleared with diseases like HbsAg, HCV, HIV,VDRL & MP!
Am sure these people would have started New Year with a satisfaction that they are aware of their Thalassemia status! 🙂
I would like to specially thank PYR Karachi Chapter to be the part of event, to support our cause, in short for everything 🙂
inshaAllah we will keep conducting such Blood Drives and Screening Camps, if you want to attend, stay tune 🙂

What were the awards for? and why?
SEPLAA Foundation is a non-profit and a-political think tank which performs as an activist organization to:
- Do research, create awareness and facilitate improvements in the areas of health, environment, society, education, empowerment and law.

It was initially established as a privately funded organization in Lahore, Pakistan in February 2009 as the Seeds of Education, Policy & Legal Awareness Association (SEPLAA).

Our plan is to gather donors then according to the monthly contribution we will be sponsoring few non affording Thalassemia patients. And rest of the contribution would be used in our campaigns (blood camps, screening camps & awareness seminars).
You can even donate 100RS, interested people please drop in your email id and you will be added to our pool of donors.
