Islamabad, Pakistan

The Problem Being Addressed: Over 60,000 children in Pakistan are suffering from thalassemia major, the most common fatal genetic disease in the world. Because of lack of knowledge or availability of tests in many areas of Pakistan, 5000 children are born with this disease each year. The weekly treatment needed by theses children to stay alive is a huge economic burden on affected families because the cost is often higher than their total income. Consequently, the majority of children do not live longer than adolescence.

The Family Support Project
Many children that suffer from leukemia and other forms of childhood cancer come from families with low-incomes. Families are often not able to provide the needed treatment their children need to survive due to financial constraints. Cure2Children supports families so that they don't have to choose between purchasing medicines for their sick child or feeding their healthy sibling.

Free HLA Typing

The Free HLA Typing Project Cure2Children provides HLA-typing free of charge to low-income families that need it. HLA-typing is a test that allows you to find a bone marrow donor match for someone in need of a bone marrow transplant. This is useful for children curable by marrow or blood stem cell transpla ntation from severe thalassemia, sickle-cell anemia, aplastic anemia , leukemia and other forms of pediatric cancers and blood disorders.
