State level Consultation on Status of Thalassemia and Other Hemoglobinopthies in Karnataka organised
"State level Consultation on Status of Thalassemia and Other Hemoglobinopthies in Karnataka" was organised by Sankalp India Foundation with the major thalassemia centers in Bangalore as co-hosts on 9th of March 2016 at Rashtrotthana Parishat, Bengaluru.
November 14 2011 saw the birth of a new commitment for volunteers at Sankalp. From a bunch of volunteers taking up emergency blood requests and organizing a few blood donation drives, we took up something more serious and potentially game changing.
It was around July last year when we decided to put laziness behind and initiate the Sunday get-together for Thalassemia. There was a situation where several parents wanted to meet us and have discussions about various issues faced by their children.
