Just Blood


Just Blood:

Thalassemia is a blood disorder passed down through families (inherited) in which the body makes an abnormal form of haemoglobin, the protein in red blood cells that carries oxygen.

 The disorder results in excessive destruction of red blood cells, which leads to anaemia.Statistics reveal that in India thalassemia major affects over 1, 00,000 people and over 8,000 reported thalassemia births take place every year. There are, however, many more unreported cases as well. The most common treatment for all major forms of thalassemia is red blood cell transfusions and normally a thalassemic kid requires blood transfusion every 3 months!!

Hence to help those kids in their fight for life, we organize specific blood donation drive named Just Blood.
