Film & TV celebrity entertain affected children on 26th year of World Thalassemia Day

Like every year on 8th May 2015 also Sapna Jeswani, trustee of the NGO ‘We Care Trust’, organized special screening of ‘Fung Fu Panda3 ’ in association with Cinepolis multiplex  for Thalassemia affected children. Actors from serial  ' Badi Door Se Aaye Hain' Sumeet Raghvan, Vinay, Pradeep with Aatish Kapadiya, Film Pyaar ka Panchnama fame actress Sonnalli Seygall, Film Tere Bin Laden's Laden aka Pradyuman Singh etc. entertained the kids with their talk, acts and imitations. Kids loved their selfie moments with stars. 

Says Sapna, “This is our 26th year. Year after year it’s been our constant endeavor to not only help the affected kids with financial and technical assistance but also create constant awareness amongst the would be parents. It is an illness that is genetically acquired.”

Every Year ‘We Care Trust’ joins hand with Celebrities to bring awareness about genetically acquired disorder Thalassemia in children. 

Thalassemia is inherited blood disorder. "Inherited" means they're passed on from parents to children through genes. It is very serious blood disease that begins in early childhood. Child suffering from this normally has a limited life span. Thalassemia causes the body to make fewer healthy red blood cells and less Hemoglobin than normal. Hence, people who have Thalassemia can have mild or severe anemia. If untreated, death is imminent.
