A small one room blood bank it was “Burhani Blood Bank” until the helpless parents of a child from within the community approached the bank with many an aspiration. The young doctors pledged to do their best, which then was provide properly screened blood for transfusion to the little child. This aroused an emergent urge within the lads to create a Thalassemia center where these little souls would find their right to live.
A well planned and structured Thalassemia center started taking shape, whilst the members started taking on registrations and within no time a list of helpless little children portrayed their wish to live in the form of registrations.
His excellency Mr. Mamnoon Hussain who in the 1990’s served as the Governor for Sindh, inaugurated the premises which had been constructed meticulously to fulfill a dream- a vision that gleamed in our eyes!
It has been an uphill task, as voluntary blood from family donors was sparse and red liquid sold on the streets in the name of blood. Since then till date the registrations have doubled of people who walk in through the gates with a hope to live.
Extending knowledge, experiences and expertise gained from countries across the globe with successful control is aimed at objectively at Burhani Blood Bank. This allows Burhani Blood Bank to have a full-fledged laboratory fully equipped with the latest technology as per international standards.
