Thalassemia is a serious inherited blood disorder. A child suffering from such a disease requires one unit of blood every two weeks. Survival of a Thalassemia major depends upon repeated life-long blood transfusions and iron chelation. As red blood cell transfusion is the most common treatment, the blood banks play a pivotal role in this.
Neel Foundation over years has been organising blood donation camps to commemorate Martyrs Day (23rd March) of Shaheed Bhagat Singh, Rajguru and Sukhdev.
