Thalassemia Camp

Today we conducted a camp for our Thalassemia babies and screened them for HIV , Hepatitis B and Hepatitis C virus. In all we screened 25 babies and also did their general health checkups and guided the parents for proper care. We also provided them with the concession forms of railways and roadways so that they can awail this facility. It was only for one unlucy girl child of 7 yrs who tested positive for HIV. In the end we provided medicines to the parents. Thanks to 2 parents who understands the financial problems and donated money for the poor and needy patients. We also had a meeting with them and wrote down their problems they were facing and tried to show them the way out. The next meeting is scheduled on July 10th when all these children would be further screened by a Hemato oncologist from Ahemdabad.
