The WFH Humanitarian Aid Program provides donated factor to many countries around the world. These donations help people with bleeding disorders (PWBDs) enjoy a better quality of life. Pakistan is a country the Program has been providing consistent factor donations to since 2001. These dependable donations have made it possible for people with bleeding disorders (PWBDs) to undergo 232 surgeries. The factor has also allowed 96 PWBDs to go on prophylaxis—the majority of them children.
One child who has recently benefitted from the WFH Humanitarian Aid Program is Mohammad Ibrahim, a 6-year-old from Pakistan with severe Hemophilia A. After sustaining a head injury, he developed a posterior fossa epidural hematoma and an occipital extradural hematoma. Without access to factor, the young boy would have died. Thankfully, he received donated factor provided by the WFH Humanitarian Aid Program and was able to successfully undergo the necessary operation—without any excessive bleeding during or after the procedure.
In 2020, the WFH Humanitarian Aid Program donated over 5.5 million IUs of factor concentrates, and over 100,000 mg of non-factor replacement therapy, to Pakistan.
