Under its Thalassemia Major Eradication Program, HIWT has been providing 100% free of cost quality medical care and education to 260 registered Thal Stars (Thalassemia Children) for the past 9 years. Considering the harsh realities of Pakistan, where 5 out of every 100 people are effected by the disorder (with approximately 9 million people afflicted with Thalassemia minor and 90,000-100,000 people carrying Thalassemia major),
it is imperative that we gain the commitment and support of socially sensitized organizations, channels and individuals.
All patients suffer with Thalassemia Major and belong to less-advantaged families who cannot afford monthly expenses of standard thalassemia care which includes blood transfusion, medicines, IRON Chelation, Desferal Therapy, OPD, lab tests etc.
It is worth highlighting that HIWT has a commitment to provide 100% free of cost quality services without any discrimination. The detailed registration forms can be obtained upon request.
