Every day, we match incredible individuals willing to donate their blood stem cells or bone marrow to people with blood cancer and blood disorders who desperately need lifesaving transplants
It all began in 1974. With her three-year-old son Anthony in urgent need of a bone marrow transplant, Shirley Nolan set up the world’s first register to match donors with people in desperate need. Now, we help three people each day find that lifesaving match.
DKMS: Delete Blood Cancer
DKMS is an international non-profit organisation with offices in the UK (opened 2013), India, operating together with our partner BMST (2019), Chile (2018), Poland (2009), the United States (2004) and Germany (1991).
We have more than 8 million potential donors registered within the DKMS family and have given more than 69,000 second chances of life to people diagnosed with blood cancer. Our worldwide search for new donors continues though as many people are still not able to find the matching donor they need.
Imam Hussain Blood Donation
The Imam Hussain Blood Donation Campaign is a voluntary project which aims to encourage more muslims to give blood. First launched in January 2006 in Manchester UK, IHBDC is now the largest Muslim Blood Donation Project nationally with a presence in over 20 cities.
As we continued to grow there has been equally growing interest in our campaign from around the world. Therefore we embarked on this mission to create a global platform for blood donation campaigns
Muslim Student Council
The Muslim Students Council (MSC) is a forum specifically catering for AhlulBayt Islamic University Societies across the UK, but open to the membership of all Islamic University Societies.
The MSC provides a unifying platform and a national-level steering committee that functions to provide AhlulBayt Islamic Societies at UK universities with the ethical, intellectual and managerial framework to perform their crucial roles.
Team Margot campaigns for more people to join the worldwide registers as potential bone marrow/stem cell donors, especially people from ethnic minorities or those with a mixed heritage.
In 2013, 14-month-old Margot Martini was diagnosed with blood cancer and required a bone marrow transplant (also known as a stem cell transplant) to stand the best chance of survival.
The National Black, Asian, Mixed Race, and Minority Ethnic (BAME) Transplant Alliance (NBTA) is a coalition of organisations which seeks to promote awareness of organ, blood and stem cell donation amongst BAME people and to increase the number of donors from these communities.
We aim to promote effective and efficient partnership working between members, encouraging a coordination of initiatives that make the most of skills, experience and infrastructure already available.
