The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has put a severe strain on the blood supply as all large scale blood drives had to be cancelled. Blood inventories of thalassemia centers and other charity based blood banks are drying up. It poses a grave threat to the lives of thousands of children suffering from thalassemia and hemophilia as they are being turned away due to unavailability of blood products. Thalassemia is a blood disorder in which the body makes an abnormal form of hemoglobin, which causes excessive destruction of red blood cells. It is a daunting disease since to keep Thalassemia patients healthy and alive, regular blood transfusions are needed. Similarly, children suffering from hemophilia are also at a high risk. Hemophilia is a medical condition in which the ability of the blood to clot is severely reduced, causing the sufferer to bleed severely from even a slight injury.

Patients look towards doctors and others healthcare professionals for help during diseases. Most of the time, they get healthy but they share their burden and sometimes diseases too with those messiahs. This physical and mental stress results in burnout and depression, and sometime catching the disease itself.
