    Dear friends



    Thalassaemia is a genetic condition affecting the red blood cells. Haemoglobin is a chemical found in the red blood cells which carries oxygen from the lungs to all parts of the body. Thalassaemia occurs when a person is unable to produce the required amount of haemoglobin. This is a condition requiring life long blood transfusion and medications. Without regular blood transfusion, the haemoglobin level will be decreased and without sufficient haemoglobin, the body cannot carry oxygen properly and after a while the body will not survive.

    The average expense every month is about Rs. 5,000/. Most of the families of the patients are struggling to cope with the expenses. VHS Thalassaemia Transfusion centre in VHS is doing a free service for the poor patients. Most of them are small children. I request Indus Ladies in and around Adyar to donate blood or money to the patients. I and my husband are regular donors of blood. I’m proud of that.

    Let us try to save those children.
