A digital step towards Thalassemia-Free India

New Delhi/NCR, Foundation Against Thalassemia is all set to raise an important digital step tonight towards its mission of “Helping India become Thalassaemia Free by 2025”, by launching its Mobile App.  On the occasion of the 72nd Independence Day of the country the FAT (abbreviation of Foundation Against Thalassaemia) App will be dedicated to all the children suffering from thalassaemia.
this app is available for download from Google Play Store in Android Phones.
The Foundation’s Chief Patron, Madan Chawla said that this app is the first such an exclusive app dedicated to Thalassaemia, which in addition to providing information about thalassemia disease, also helps registrations of children with thalassemia, blood donation, thalasseamia career test, stem cell / bone marrow donation camp etc.  Apart from this, 24×7 online information will also be available about all future programs of the Foundation like free medicines distribution, blood transfusion camps, health camps, thalassaemia carnivals etc. through this App.
FAT App also has a secure Payment Gateway, through which people can give financial support with debit / credit cards, net banking, pay TM and many other ways. It is worth mentioning that the donation given to the Foundation is exempted under Section 80G of the Indian Income Tax Act.
Not only this, through this app, people can also connect to the Foundation’s Facebook, Twitter, Google Plus, Instagram, YouTube, LinkedIn, Pinterest accounts as well its Website.
Madan Chawla, who is a certified Thalassemia Care Expert by Thalassemia International Federation, Cyprus, further said that more than 400 million people use smartphones in our country. According to the changing times, it is very important to adopt technology oriented modern methods to spread information about thalassaemia to increase the size and speed of outreach.
According to the organization’s General Secretary, Ravindra Dudeja, the whole country is praising and supporting Prime Minister Narendra Modi’s Digital India ambition.  How could our Foundation remain behind in this era of digitization!  He added that all the information related to the activities of the organization can now be obtained through just one click on the go.

J K Bhatia, B Das Batra, Pankaj Chaudhary, Neeraj Kukreja, Arun Bhatia etc. thanked and congratulated Rupali Chawla a student of B.Tech (Computer Engineering) of YMCA University of Science and Technology, Faridabad for making this App absolutely selflessly and offering it to the Foundation without any charges. It is notable that Rupali made this app in a record time by working tirelessly by day and night so that the app can be aptly launched on the occasion of the Independence Day in line with the Foundation’s vision of Thalassaemia Free India.
The Executive Committee team of the Foundation on this occasion reaffirmed the oath that it will continue to take every possible step to  Help India become Thalassaemia Free.
