As a non-profit organization Sundas Foundation has been tackling at a fairly large scale the issues related to the blood transfusion services. The Sundas Foundation is the pioneer of the voluntary blood transfusion service and first of its kind in the whole of Gujranwala Division and is operating now in Sialkot, Lahore, Faisalabad, Daska, Gujrrat, Mirpur AJK and Mianwali. Sundas Foundation is registered as a member of Thalassaemia International Federation (T.I.F.) and World Haemophilia Federation.
Sundas Foundation was established in 1998 in Gujranwala as a Blood Transfusion Center. Before this institution many people started unequipped and unauthorized blood banks on commercial basis. Such blood banks provided unscreened and contaminated blood unfit for the very purpose of transfusion. After the establishment of Sundas Foundation all such quacks have vanished: that is the major service, which we have rendered to community.
During the period of sixteen (16) years Sundas Foundation supplied more than 262,584 units of healthy and screened blood and blood products. Now a day Sundas Foundation supplies more than 195 units of blood and blood products every day. This constitutes around 40 – 50% of the total requirement of blood and blood products at Lahore, Gujranwala and Sialkot.
Provision of specialized service for patients with blood disorders at a blood transfusion service center is a rare phenomenon in Pakistan. Sundas Foundation these days supplies hundreds of pints of healthy and screened blood and blood products along with free comprehensive treatment to hundreds of registered patients, mostly children, suffering from chronic blood diseases such as Thalassaemia, Hemophilia and Leukemia. Besides this we provide Emergency Medical Services round the clock.
The Sundas Foundation is staffed by a team of highly dedicated professionals and volunteers, providing a ray of hope to all those who come to us in their hour of despair and need. If there would have been no such foundation in Gujranwala, Sialkot, Lahore, Faisalabad, Gujarat, Daska, Mirpur AJK and Mianwali, these children shall not know where to go. The Government Hospitals provide no such facilities and private hospitals are out of the reach of these patients who need constant treatment and blood transfusion and for which charges are forbiddingly high in these organizations.
