Smt. Sujata Raikar, Founder of Saath Charitable Trust alongwith the Principal of Sane Guruji School, Dadar conducted an awareness drive about Thalassaemia for the parents and children of Std 8th & 9th on 7th July 2018. After a brief talk about Thalassemia, blood samples of the students were collected and a thalassemia detection test was carried out.
The Principal of this school has also committed that this test shall be carried out every year for the new students of the school.
This is a benchmark decision which will make all the current and future batches of children of this school thalassemia free. A small step in the fight to eradicate Thalassaemia.
