Something Fun Happening at Al-Mustafa Thalassemia Unit

Assalam-o-Alaikum and Ramadan Kareem!

I hope this update finds you Happy and Healthy. 

Thalassemia treatment is not all about doing procedures and sending the child back home. It is a continuous therapy that involves hours of lengthy procedures such as blood transfusion and iron chelation pumps. Although it is much more expensive, most of our patients have been switched to oral iron chelation therapy. However, a parenteral treatment is sometimes needed according to the severity of the child's condition.

At Al-Mustafa Thalassemia Unit, we focus on turning this painful and tiring therapy into a pleasant one. Our thalassemia team regularly celebrates Birthdays, Picnics and other fun activities to keep the children engaged and make the treatment palatable.

The most challenging situation during the treatment is making the child sit on a chair with minimum activity during the lengthy procedures. Playing cartoons on screen is not enough. We needed a more colourful and playful funky environment to combat boredom during the session. We have planned to completely redesign and relocate the Unit to a more extensive and exclusive place, with a more child loving interior and space. But that will take more time. Meanwhile, we have placed some fun and coloured wallpapers, making the room more alive, playful, and exciting. 

On the other hand, the children are not coming slow with their parties and picnics.

Picnic at PAF MUSEUM

Al-Mustafa arranged a fun day out for Thalassemic Children at Pakistan Air Force Museum. This museum is one of the favourite venues of our children as it has everything interesting to offer the kids, from its lush green grounds to gigantic air crafts and the fun rides. Children got happy to the core. Their bright, toothy smiles and happy faces are enough to tell the day's tale. 

PIZZA PARTY

At Al-Mustafa Thalassemia Unit, when all the reasons for partying are consumed, the children start chanting THE PIZZA PARTY. On a lighter note: It is said that the relationship between the children at our Thalassemia Unit and pizza is two-way. The children keep on demanding the pizza, and it keeps coming their way. 

We missed you while eating the hot pizzas topped with molten cheese. 

I hope we can gather someday at this happening party and share lots of love, kindness and hot Pizzas. 

Take Care and Spread Joy!
