Granting a cheque to the Fatimid Foundation Trust, Syed said that if given treatment, the patients can lead normal lives. He pointed out that the main reason for these blood diseases in children was intermarrying between cousins. The administrator said that the hemoglobin electro-process test before marriage could save the next generation and that KMC was reviewing the possibility of providing this service at its hospitals. He said that KMC was already spending millions of rupees on the health care of Karachi’s residents and on the control of infectious diseases.
