On World Blood Donation Day

Every day numerous children suffering from thalassemia, pregnant women, individuals who met with accidents, people in deed of surgery, people fighting cancer and many more patients receive the gift of life donated by unknown voluntary blood donors. Thank you blood donors for being there for them. Your Selfless contribution preserves hope, gifts smiles and saves lives! KEEP GIVING FREELY.

Ethical and legal considerations in blood donor counselling

While voluntary blood donation camps are improving in terms of their adherence to national and global standards are concerned, a major area which continues to remain neglected is that of donor counselling. Most blood banks do not have a trained counsellor to attend the drives and even those who take up the responsibility lack the necessary focus and skill. We share in this article the ethical and legal considerations in blood donor counseling as indicated in the Implementation Guidelines for Blood donor Counselling by World Health Organisation.

Thal Meet-Up

The news of a child being born with thalassemia devastates the family. More grueling is the struggle to find the way ahead for disease management. Each family was forced to wage their own battle and find their way through. The situation is most difficult for the poor and the illiterate parents. 

On World Thalassemia Day
Sankalp India Foundation has been involved with Thalassemia management for 3 years now but walking into the thalassemia day care is not an easy thing for me. I love to interact with the children and the  families, try to reassure them, help them with their doubts, listed to them, and see their smiles.
