HOPE BEGINS WITH YOU
Our Mission is to give life
The Sunflower Fund, a National Non-Profit Company (NPC), is an organisation in South Africa dedicated to creating awareness, educating the public and handling the registration process for people to join the South African Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR). The Sunflower Fund pays for the test cost of people joining the SABMR.
By increasing the number of donors listed on the national database, this offers hope to children and adults diagnosed with leukaemia and other life-threatening blood disorders. Higher numbers on the Registry increase their chance of finding matching bone marrow stem cell donors in order to undergo life-saving bone marrow stem cell transplants.
What we've achieved so far.
So far, our efforts have increased the donor numbers on the SABMR to over 71 000 as at 30th September 2015! This is a wonderful achievement, yet more needs to be done.
1:100 000 chance
There is a 1:100 000 chance of finding a compatible donor, our goal is to put 400 000 donors onto the South African Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR).
if you are interested in donating - it is non evasive and will benefit another human who is in crisis.
