I am really slow in updating my journey on blog.. we visited Haripur Thalassemia Care & Prevention Center last month and here I am with all the updates gathered from there after a month :p
We were basically invited for a seminar to encourage patients of Haripur who are really in bad condition, to spread awareness and to awaken people of Haripur to come forward and help the patients there.. to make them realize that people from other cities like us are coming just for the sake of future generation so the people of Haripur, industrialist, politicians etc should do their part too.
As soon as I confirm my participation I started to gather funds so that we could take some infusion pumps and desferal injections with us for the patients of Haripur Thalassemia Center, since there are 175 patients registered but none of them is on proper iron chelation.
Soon we gathered funds for 5 infusion pumps and more than 200 injections Alhamdulillah.
Journey begins towards Haripur. Participated in the seminar, met patients, parents, many people from Haripur.. tried to play very small part.. distributed infusion pumps and injections in the most deserving patients.
Haripur Thalassemia Center is being run by Shahid Afridi [not the cricketer], in a rented place which has been changed quiet a few times due to one or other reason in last 6 years. Currently it has total 2 rooms & a laboratory. They are trying to run in the limited capacity, it is the only thalassemia center of Haripur with 175 patients registered.
Center is badly suffering from lack of place, staff, desferal injections, blood, funds etc.. we have tried to do as much as we could but we really wish if someone can sponsor the place completely and help them generously.
Here are the picture & videos of some events from Haripur visit..
