The Stem Cell Registry

Stem Cells from adult donors help Indians with blood cancer, Thalassemia and immune deficiency diseases. See more about the eligibility. To become a donor, first join the registry through this online form.

If you know of anyone organizing a blood camp, write to Jeevan or call +91 44 4350 4246 and ask them to send their team over to collect blood and DNA samples for their registry. Sponsors are always welcome and earn the undying gratitude of the many people whose lives can be saved.

Every year over 120,000 Indians are diagnosed with blood cancers and another 10000 children are born with diseases like Thalassemia. They can hope for a 60 to 80% chance of cure, if they find matching stem cell donors. The chance of finding a donor in the family is less than 30%. The match is highly ethnicity dependent and hence the chance of finding a match in an Indian registry is over 70%..

Stem Cells from donated cord blood can help children with a body weight less than 30 Kg. Other patients will need a larger number of cells and that can only be obtained from a donor either as Peripheral Blood Stem Cell (PBSC) donation or Bone Marrow Donation.

Bone Marrow Registry is a database of potential stem cell donors, whose Human Leucocyte Antigen (HLA) is typed by Jeevan and stored in a server. When a patient needs a donor, the matching donor is identified from the database. He / she is then counseled, medically examined and then encouraged to donate stem cells. These stem cells are used for the treatment of patients.

Ammai Appar Agam

Economically

This page offers information to people on how to help Beggars and Houseless people.

Many people are against giving money to beggars especially children or people who seem fit and able. What these people need is education and vocational training and an opportunity to work.

So if you do not have the capacity to help further, please consider helping us gain the right information and spread it. And when possible, take the time to talk to these economically disadvantaged people and find out their problems and suggest places / people who can help them.
