Description of Organization

Since 1993, the Bone Marrow Donor Programme has been providing that often, last chance of survival to hundreds of patients su?ering from terminal blood-related diseases, in the form of a bone marrow transplant from an unrelated marrow donor.

BMDP manages Singapore’s only register of volunteer bone marrow donors and with a slim chance of ?nding that perfect matched donor, we are fully committed to building the local donor register into a national asset to help all Singaporeans have that second chance of life.

What we do at BMDP directly impacts life and death, hence our promise of “A donor for every patient”. We reach out to all sectors within our community to share the message and empower people with the choice to save a life.

 

Intended use of funds through the YFC 2022 programme

Generally for unassigned/undesignated donations such as Patient Subsidies, Marrow Donor Recruitment and Public Education, Search to Transplant Services and Donor Management as stated https://bmdp.org/how-your-donation-helps.

 

Engaging and involving the YFC participants

The BMDP will arrange for teams to go through a training to understand what BMDP is doing and to identify critical problems. Thereafter, a representative of BMDP will mentor the youths through the execution of the project. Meetings and discussion will be held to ensure that the students are working towards their goals and objectives in accordance to the BMDP’s mission.
