Think Foundation is grateful to MMFSL for understanding the extreme distress faced by thalassaemia patients and their families in Aurangabad and Jalna. The Company is responsible for setting up of the first-ever Thalassaemia Day Care Centres in both locations. This will bring life-saving relief to thalassaemia patients, and enable their families to live a life of dignity. Apart from funding physical facilities at the Centre for a comfortable transfusion experience, the Company has provided support for medicines, medical investigations, medical camps and comprehensive management of thalassaemia.
