For most of us, ‘THALASSEMIA is just another term that we have read somewhere or heard about. However, in stark reality, thousands of patients battle Thalassemia on a regular basis, all through their lives. Thalassemia is a genetic blood disorder that leads to an excessive destruction of red blood cells, which results in anaemia. Children with Thalassemia require lifelong blood transfusions, as often as every three weeks and may  need a daily dose of medicines to lead a almost normal life.I want to be a life saver and help those with Thalassemia through this crowdfunding campaign.

For over 3 decades now the Bangalore Medical Services Trust (BMST as its known was established by the Rotary Club of Bangalore and TTK Group of companies), has been providing blood banking services and blood transfusion to patients from all over Karnataka & the surrounding states. All the medical services provided by BMST are top-notch, and are made available free of cost to many patients who come to their premises, seeking help. 

The only treatment option for those diagnosed with Thalassemia is regular blood transfusion (sometimes twice a month). Each transfusion costs about INR 2000 (two thousand) including crowdfunding charges. 


About Thalassemia:

About me & this campaign:

I am DIKSHITHA SRIRAM and I study at the Chrysalis High in Varthur, Bangalore. My hobby is to choreograph new dance steps and to listen to music and sing. 

I have seen my best friend suffering from Thalassemia. She could not afford the best medical treatment due to financial problems. Once I understood the problem, I decided that I wanted to help her or more people like her! This my attempt to gift a normal life to kids of my age.

A few days ago, our school had a program in which they told us about a crowdfunding program which is going to help raise funds for people who are suffering from Thalassemia.

Just a contribution of INR 2000 can make a difference in their life. They can live a normal and a happy life like other kids without any fear of death. The contribution of INR can help underprivileged kids suffering from Thalassemia live a full life and grow to become adults. They can grow up to be a butterfly from a pupa.

Please support me to help people or kids like my friend by just contributing some amount of money.

Will we get to know details of the people who benefitted?

Yes you will get basic information about how many people were funded and when, while respecting their PRIVACY . After the money has been collected it will be transferred by Fueladream to BMST. It will take from 30 to 120 days after that to get details of who the beneficiary was. BMST can share the personal details of the beneficiaries only if they give written consent.Otherwise at some details like contact number, age of the patient and so on can be shared.  Once I get this information from the team at BMST I will update the information on the campaign. You will then get an alert & can read details about the beneficiaries.

What are the crowdfunding charges?

Fueladream charges 2% for the payment for the payment gateway and 10% as crowdfunding charges. With GST of 18%  the total comes to 14.36% . There is also an initial fee of 3000 INR which is being waived for us. Of the INR 20,000 a net amount of INR 17128  will be transferred to BMST which will take care of treatment of 10 patients for a month .

When do I get the tax receipts?

It takes upto 2 weeks after the campaign is closed for the monies to be transferred to BMST. The receipts will start getting processed about 4 to 6 weeks AFTER the campaign is closed and will be sent to you directly.

How does crowdfunding work?

Crowdfunding in India is a relatively new concept & is growing very quickly.

It’s a concept that allows a large number of funders (like you) to fund an Idea or a cause or event by giving small amounts of money online. Fueladream.com is a crowdfunding platform in India that allows for such a pooling of funds.

You can fund innovations & ideas on FuelADream and be the first to get these products or make them come true. You can also do a good turn by funding charities and causes through crowdfunding. When you fund a charity it’s more like a donation & you get small innovative rewards like a shout-out on an FB page or a thank you email from the beneficiaries & Tax benefits if it involves a registered NGO.

Updates have been committed to after the campaign ends.
