Thalassaemia is an inherited blood disorder. It is incurable with conventional treatments. Most of the patient are indigenous people from remote area of north borneo. They have to travel miles away just to get their reviews & treatments done estimated every 2 weeks. As most of them are indigenous people, some of them lives in poverty. Their family couldn't afford to take care of them. They lost their oppoturnity to get education. They struggle financially. Some teenage patients drop out from school to get a job just to feed their other siblings who suffers from Thalassaemia too. Not all young adult patients are employed. Sad truth is that some of the employer most likely would think they are unfit for work.
Me & a few friends started this activity out of our own pocket. We are thinking of doing this charity for a long run, 4 times every single year (Chinese New Year twice, Eid Mubarak once & Christmas once). Help them to ease their burden, cheer them up a little. This funds will go to patient's pocket money, food & beverages, a little goodies. The rest of the funds will go to state Thalassaemia society.
One can do so much, together we can make a difference!
*If you can't support financially, then you can choose to donate blood too. Please help them. Thank you.
