ASAD is already making a difference!

Since the beginning of ASAD’s campaign on August 10, 2008, more than 200 people with a South Asian background have registered; in July 2008, that number was 38 according to OneMatch.

There are now about 5000 people of South Asian descent (about 2 %) in the OneMatch Stem Cell and Marrow Network out of a total of approximately 230,000 men and women across Canada who are willing to donate stem cells or bone marrow.

ASAD is targeting community organizations, religious institutions, social networks and more, in order to reach the approximately half a million South Asians who live in the Greater Toronto Area alone. Spread the word.
