Campaign to create awareness about umbilical cord
Mississauga/Sep 15, 2015
Amar Karma Organ Donation Society, a not for profit organization, will launch a new campaign ‘The Cord of Love’ to create awareness about donating umbilical cord at the birth of a baby. First information seminar on the campaign will held on October 4 , 1PM to 5PM, at Chinguacousy Wellness Centre in Brampton.
The Karma Society, Canada’s first South Asian organization to highlight the need for organ and tissue donation in GTA, B.C and India for past 6 years is now stepping up to educate people about donation of Umbilical Cord Blood in coordination with Canadian Blood Services.
The speakers from Canadian Blood Services will be present to share detailed information about how the umbilical cord blood donation works.
Today, cord blood stems cells are used in the treatment of nearly 80 diseases, including a wide range of cancers, genetic diseases, and blood disorders. In a cord blood transplant, stem cells are infused in to a patient’s bloodstream where they go to work healing and repairing damaged cells and tissue. Detailed information on the campaign is available on Amar Karma’s website: www.amarkarma.org
