Since 1993, the Bone Marrow Donor Programme has been providing that one chance of survival to hundreds of patients suffering from terminal blood-related diseases. Where their only chance is to have a bone marrow transplant and there’s no matching brother or sister able to donate healthy blood stem cells, they come to us.
The BMDP manages Singapore’s only register of volunteer bone marrow donors and with just a 1 in 20,000 chance of finding a matching donor, we are absolutely committed to building the local donor register into a true national asset able to help all Singaporeans have that second chance.
What we do literally means the difference between life and death and that is why we make a promise to find a donor for every patient. We reach out to all sectors within our community to share the word and let people know that every one of us has the power to save a life – then we give them the opportunity to sign up and actually do something about it.
