“DATRI Blood Stem Cell Donors Registry” is doing remarkable work in India in combating blood cancer. I am pleased to extend Transworld Group’s support to the noble cause and am extremely proud of our colleagues who have registered globally to be potential donors. I am sure that with each donor supporting the fight against cancer, we will be able to give a gift of life to many battling the disease.”
– Ramesh Ramakrishnan, Chairman
I am proud to partner with DATRI as Transworld, to help them in their mission to create a donor registry which helps patients suffering from fatal blood disorders like blood cancer, thalassemia, leukaemia etc. They have a bilateral approach to address the social perception and lack of awareness about stem cell donation, while also creating a registry. DATRI has been steadfast in traversing the route to attain its vision of reaching out to every patient in need of life saving blood stem cells. Global employees of Transworld have proudly registered as potential donors and I am delighted to see their choice as well as determination to make a difference. I wish DATRI success in their life-saving journey and I’m glad to be part of the initiative to gift a life.
– Anisha Ramakrishnan, Director, Corporate Responsibility
