The thalassemia clinic run by Indian Red Cross Society, Pune treats thalassemia patients and organises blood transfusion for them. The patients spend a day at the clinic whenever they need to undergo blood transfusion. We offered to screen images of a large collection of paintings by children and young adults so that the patients will be able to view these beautiful artworks while they are at the clinic. Our suggestion was accepted by the management of Indian Red Cross Society, Pune. The digital display of artworks is now operational at the thalassemia clinic of Indian Red Cross Society, Pune.
