The increasing number of Thalassaemia patients every year is the background for Bank OCBC NISP to actively organise this CSR program, Bank OCBC NISP hopes that this activity can break the chain of Thalassaemia disease, one of which is through a free screening program or blood test to find out whether someone carries the thalassaemia gene / trait in their blood.

During the event, there was also a seminar presented by health experts from Prodia clinical laboratory, inviting students to know more about Thalassaemia.

*Thalassaemia is an 'inherited' red blood cell disorder. As a result of the blood disorder, the patient's body cannot form enough haemoglobin in their blood, thus requiring blood transfusions throughout their life.
