Our work focuses on supporting those affected by thalassemia and their relatives, promoting structural prevention and raising public awareness of this genetic disorder.

An estimated 4.6 million children and young people suffer from thalassemia worldwide (including Germany), a figure that demonstrates a clear social, cultural and political need for sustained and wide-ranging forms of assistance.

Here, you can find out more about the disorder of thalassemia, get an insight into our work and our concerns and discover how you can help in easy and practical terms.
