Project Report for the month of March, April and May 2017.

 

Dear Donor,

Our project “Help Thalassemia Child get Blood - Their Lifeline” takes baby steps as it tries to motivate more number of people to Donate Blood Voluntarily and support Children with Thalassemia. We thank one and all who have supported us at our Camps, Awareness talks, Informal chats or social media and in making of the Short Film for creating Awareness on Thalassemia.

With your support, we continue to make improvements and achieve progress, as contemplated, in our road map for future. Our progress, with your support, is making us believe that we can achieve our goal of providing Blood free to children suffering from Thalassemia.

 

May 8th

World Thalassemia Day

Get Connected: Share Knowledge and Experience and Fight for a Better Tomorrow in Thalassemia

Keeping this year’s theme in mind, Aarohi worked with renewed effort in creating Awareness about Thalassemia. A number of sessions were held to make people aware about the existence of Thalassemia. People were spoken to individually, in small groups and in sessions.

 

 

A short film with community participation and volunteers was made specifically to create awareness. This film tells a story of a mother of 2 children with Thalassemia, their dreams and aspirations, their struggle to get Blood, while striving to lead as normal life as possible.  On the eve of World Thalassemia Day an Awareness Session with the Screening of this film was held at a Community Centre housing about 2000 families.

The film screening and awareness session was successful and the audience present thoroughly enjoyed the film.  

The talk was well received and lots of people showed interest in knowing more about this disorder.

Please watch the short film on the link :

Our target is to support 200 children with Thalassemia with Blood. In these 3 months we issued 552 units to Thalssemia Children free of cost. May was a difficult month for us and the children as we were short of Donors who came forward to donate Blood.

We thank you for your continued support and patronage in our quest of promoting Voluntary Blood Donation to support Thalassemia Children get Blood. Through our various programs, like Camps, Awareness talks, Informal chats or social media, we continuously promote Voluntary Blood Donation and Detection of Thalassemia carrier state so that we can decrease the incidence of children born with this disorder.

With your support, we continue to make improvements and achieve progress as contemplated in our road map for future. Our progress with your support is making us believe that we can achieve our goal of providing blood to children suffering from Thalassemia.

Outlined below are various activities undertaken by Aarohi during the period:

Promotion of Voluntary Blood Donation

WHO aims at Blood Donation to be from 100 % Voluntary, Non-remunerated Donors. The safest Blood is from these Donors who are in the best of health and are also from a low risk population for Blood Transmitted Infection.

Motivated Voluntary Donors form a safe and sustainable chain especially for patients requiring blood products regularly.

Awareness sessions for promoting Voluntary Blood Donation were held at various camps.

Spread the awareness of Voluntary Blood Donation amongst the Military and Airforce and Artillery Centre.

Camps were held in multiple locations celebrating the Army Day. Aarohi Blood Bank participated in 3 camps and had the privilege of 491 donors donating blood. These young boys led by their superiors were exemplary in their generosity in coming forward in huge numbers to help the civilians with their Blood.

Motivators !

In our Endeavour to promote 100 % Voluntary Blood Donation, a short film was made in house by the staff and friends of Aarohi.

Quiz for Donors

To promote and keep up the Voluntary Donors motivation to donate Blood, a quiz is prepared and circulated amongst the donors. About 300 donors have so far participated in the quiz. This has created lot of interest in the donors to know more about Blood Donation. Benefits of Blood donation were explained to the Donors. The simple and general questions about blood has also encouraged some of the donors who are not able to donate to improve their health.

Activities undertaken by Aarohi

Voluntary Blood Donation Camps are the source of Blood. In the 3 months from September to November of 2016 we have had 22 camps at various locations. Aarohi is an intermediary between these selfless people and the children requiring Blood.

ABB Drawing and Painting Project:

To create a bond between blood donor and recipient ABB undertook this project where Thalassemia Kids and other students from society started making drawings and paintings on the common theme of Blood Donation. The material required like chart paper, color pencils, crayons etc were provided by ABB. Nearly 20 kids participated in this month-long drive. We selected some 12 drawings and paintings and framed these selected ones which we started gifting it to blood donors and organizations which support us. This is also our small endeavor to connect the donor and recipient and convey the recipients Thankfulness / Gratitude towards the donor.

 

ABB Annual Day Celebrations:

On 29th October ABB celebrated its 7th Anniversary where we invited Thalassemia Kids and their parents, donors, students and other people who support us.

We had some entertaining activities for the kids like Mimickery by Sanghameshwar from Aashayein Foundation.

Thalassemia Kids also participated in this event by Singing and Dancing.

After the cake cutting the kids were given return gifts from ABB.

 

Know Your Blood Bank / Tour of ABB :

In our attempt to reach out to the common public and let them know how a blood bank functions we invited students of Stay Active Program from Attapur who visited ABB with their parents. They were shown all the steps involved in blood banking from receiving the Donor for Blood Donation of blood sample from patients to the issuing of blood. We also had a short visit to Centre for Thalassemia and Blood Disorder in the same building as ABB.

The students and parents interacted with Thalassemia Kids and their Parents and got acquainted with the issues faced by them.

 

ABB Q & A Project:

Questionnaire based Survey to understand the Knowledge, Attitude and Practices (KAP) of donors...This survey is done while the blood donation camp is conducted...This is also a strategy to engage the donors while they are waiting or during the post donation phase...The results or correct answers are shared with the donors during the camp itself in a group and in a interactive way with all the reasoning...So far almost 250 donors are covered and we wish to complete 500 donors by end of this year...

 

Community Out Reach Activities:

To reach out to the common public and connect new people to ABB’s work and to promote Voluntary Blood Donation aware programmes were conducted.
