For starters, thalassemia patients, especially children are suffering from the unavailability of blood.
Undertaking this issue, Maulana Ilyas Qadri has donated 6,500 blood bottles, to curb this mass shortage, from within his cortege.

As of 5th April 2020, the Dawat-i-Islami report card shows more than 6,500 bags of blood for our thalassemia suffering children.
Our nation needs our help
Ever since 2017, the number of thalassemia patients has been soaring up. Unquestionably, those who are suffering from this disease certainly need blood fusion to survive.
National statistics enumerate that every year, 6000 children end up suffering from this blood disorder, in which their bone marrow cannot make its own blood cells. This year’s count has reached up to 2.5 million!
Hematologist, Dr. Rahat Hussain, stated that every month 150,000 to 200,000 bags of blood are required for the patients of thalassemia. The more agitating news is that every month, there are thousands of children who are unable to get the blood amount, they require.
Being a part of this nation and as a responsible citizen, it is our duty to donate blood to our country’s blood banks, so that the future of these children can be saved.
