The background of the formation of Thalassaemia Welfare society. Burdwan hints at the endeavor of a patient guardian Mr. Kanai Bairagya the secretary of this society. Along with the effort of other patient guardians and well wishers, this society has been able to set up a hospital of the Thalassaemia patients. Dr. ASHA RAO, the director of Bhoruka Blood Bank is helping this society in many respect in a continual process for the betterment of our patients. The hospital is running purely on public donation.
The story started before 1991 when my daughter was a Thalassemia patient. After her death I feel about the disease. When I thought about the hospital where the patient treat and collect blood for transfusion of blood from own blood bank. At that time it was a dream but not impossible. I collect money from door to door. After some year I started to foundation my dream project THALASSEMIA HOSPITAL in Burdwan. The year 1991 (24.12.1991) I fulfilled my dream and open the thalassemia hospital and blood bank. But I forced to closed the blood bank for in sufficient of funds.
Our aim is to eradicate Thalassaemia as it has been done in Cyprus . Prevention is better then cure is most suitable to Thalassaemia . Our Society is working hard to improve the "Care" of Thalassaemia and our commitment is obviously towards "control" of this disease. The most effective approach needs directed to create awareness, marriage counseling and antenatal diagnosis.
For treatment of Thalassaemia children we have built up a hospital infront of Agriculture Farm: Kalna Road, in Burdwan District, 100 Km away from Calcutta.
This hospital is the only heaven for the thalassaemic children of Burdwan, Nadia, Birbhum, Bankura , Midnapur, Purulia , Hoogly, Murshidabad, whole of North Bengal & Bhagalpur District of Bihar state.
Thalassaemia is a blood disorder passed down through families.So we organised a blood donation camp every time.
