Lively Children ! During Blood Transfusion !!
Lively Children ! During Blood Transfusion !!

GLOBAL GIVING REPORT FOR JUNE TO AUGUST 2019

             Magical Moments - Kishore and Keerthana

There is something truly magical , watching children play, have fun, despite the adversity faced by them. Kishore and Keeratana, siblings aged 13 and 9 respectively; are 2 active young children, enjoying school and play like any other kid of their age. But there is a difference ! These two children suffer from Thalassemia and need blood transfusion almost every fortnight. Kishore needs more than one unit at least once a month. In the above picture , we can see both the siblings passing time during blood transfusion with a game of Jenga. But that does not dampen their spirit and they engage in fun and frolic while they get their Elixir of Life !!!

Aarohi Blood Bank supports children by providing free blood units for transfusion since 10 years.        

 

Awareness Session on Thalassemia & Voluntary Blood Donation at Indian Railway Institute of Signal Engineering and Telecommunications (IRISET)

ABB conducted an Awareness Session on Thalassemia & Voluntary Blood Donation at IRISET on 23rd August 2019 followed by a Blood Donation camp on 24th August 2019 where 27 people donated blood voluntarily. The awareness session was to make more people know about the severe need for Blood for Thalassemia patients as well as to encourage more people to become regular voluntary blood donors.

Aarohi continuously strives to promote Voluntary Blood Donation by conducting multiple awareness sessions, in groups and individually. With this the number of people voluntarily walking into the blood bank to donate blood has increased.

We hope to increase our reach further and serve the people.

Generous Support of Donors like you help us in reaching the needy.

Thanks a lot each one of you !!

Thanks a lot Global Giving !!!

Global Giving Report from December 2018 to February 2019

  

Give Blood…Save A Life…Give A Life…

 

Snithy Reddy, a 7 year old thalassemia patient, has been a regular at our blood bank. At a point where she thought there was no hope of her survival, Snithy and we fought for the life she deserved to have, no matter what. To attest to that fact, this colourful drawing shows her dedication to fighting the life she wants to have, no matter the kind of setbacks and drawbacks she has with regards to her health. We, at Aarohi, realise Snithy is just one out of so many children suffering from a serious blood disorder and sticking to our mission, we aim bettering the lives of other Snithys all over India. Don’t just donate your blood, but also save Mother Nature at the same time!

 

Celebrating the Spirit of Volunteerism…

Despite being asked to stop camps without taking prior permission for each and individual camp by government organisers, Aarohi has managed to push through all obstacles with her head held high. Denied permissions? It’s okay. We have a solution. Worry not! We have just the right place which is looking for your valuable blood! At Aarohi, the walk in Voluntary Blood Donor, come what may, is our priority.

If we had not believed in improving the lives of those around us, we would not have grown from 6% of Voluntary Blood Donors (VBD) in 2017 to 10.6% of walk in VBD in 2018.

We are also happy to share that after partnering with Facebook for a pilot project to enhance the usage of Facebook tool for Blood Donation we could see an increase in footfalls of Voluntary Blood Donors in the period September 2018 to February 2019. With one of the largest social media platforms backing our growth and walking with us to fulfill our mission, we at Aarohi could not be more grateful for the support given. Thank you for being a part of this mission.

 

All these developments give us hope that we can strive together towards achieving WHO’s Goal of 100% Voluntary Blood Donation till 2020. We believe, like you do, that people are inherently good. We believe that you are working with us to help children live their lives to the fullest, with no inhibitions. Thank you for supporting us so far and thank you for supporting us into making the world a thalassemia friendly place!

Project Report for August to October 2018

 

A mother of a 5 year old and 2 year old girls calls the blood bank at regular intervals. Her ask is "a unit of AB +ve blood for each of her daughters".  With both the daughters requiring AB +ve blood for transfusion every 3 weeks she has to put in double the efforts for getting blood. With this, she is constantly under stress.

Only she knows how difficult it is to get blood on a regular basis, month after month since more than 5 years now. The blood transfused brings a smile on the face of the parents and the child.

Watch Anuradha appealing for blood for her daughters:
