Al-Asbahi called on companies and businessmen to help this category of patients, to alleviate their suffering. He urged the concerned authorities to work towards establishing the National Center for Patients with Thalassemia and Hereditary Blood Diseases, and to establish an open day for blood donation for people with thalassemia.

For his part, the president of the association, Dr. Ahmed Al-Makarmi, warned of the increasing registration of new cases of thalassemia in Yemen.

Dr. Al-Maqrami stressed that medicines are insufficient and the needs are many, most notably blood. He called on government and private agencies to cooperate in enhancing community awareness to confront the disease that some countries have been able to eradicate, as well as to help patients with everything they can.

In turn, the General Director of the Association, Jamil Al-Khayati, stressed the need for everyone’s cooperation to establish a culture of blood donation that contributes to saving thalassemia patients.
