Hope you enjoyed the festivities of Ramadan and Eid (the holy month of Muslims followed by the festival of Eid) because the kids at Al-Mustafa Thalassemia Unit really did enjoy this season, along with some birthday parties.

At Al-Mustafa Thalassemia Unit, we provide expert comprehensive care for children and adults suffering from thalassemia. The treatment of thalassemia depends on the type of disorder, it may include:
Blood Transfusion for correction of anaemia, based on severity.
Regular check-ups and continuous monitoring for complications of the disease and the treatment.
Iron chelation therapy, to remove excess iron from the body
Multivitamins, in case of weakness.
Well, this is not it, Al-Mustafa Welfare Society has not limited its services to providing treatment for the suffering children, but a campaign to generate and raise awareness against the disease is also an important part of our fight against this deadly disorder. The Thalassemia Campaign includes the following activities in this regard:
Public Seminars and CMEs regarding Thalassemia awareness
Parents' education regarding the care of the Thalassemic child.
Couple education about prenatal diagnosis.
Bear half of the cost of Chorionic Villus Sampling (CVS) of a couple whose child/children is already suffering from Thalassemia.
We are also working on other blood disorders as well and are working on establishing a Haemophilia setup soon.
