Al-Mustafa Thalassemia Family has grown by 43 new members

Assalam-o-alaikum / greetings!!!

We first posted this project in March 2020, and at that time, we had 125 patients registered with us. With your donations and the untiring efforts of our healthcare providers, our family has grown by 43 new members.

The children are grouped based on their age, as follows:

  • One to Five years                 52 Patients
  • Six to Ten years                    59 Patients
  • Eleven to Fifteen years         30 Patients
  • Sixteen to Twenty years        23 Patients
  • Twenty to onwards                4 Patients

You must be aware that Thalassemia is a genetic disorder, and the chances of survival are reduced with growing age. We are glad to provide free thalassemia treatment to 168 patients, which was possible with your generous donations. So now, with 43 new members, this crowded family of brave and happy children is fighting Thalassemia and sharing happy moments. 

At Al-Mustafa Thalassemia Unit, we provide comprehensive expert care for children and adults suffering from Thalassemia. The treatment of Thalassemia depends on the type of disorder, and 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 essential 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 and will establish a Haemophilia setup soon.
