Volunteer with us

We rarely come across opportunities that give us a sense of purpose or meaning to our lives, so when we do, it’s important to make the most of it. Well, here’s one opportunity for you.

The DKMS-BMST Volunteer Project, is an initiative that supports our key mission: to ensure that every patient in need of a blood stem cell transplant can find a matching donor, and potentially get a second chance at life. Our volunteers are an integral part of the work that we do. In this way, we can motivate even more young people to register as potential stem cell donors. And the best thing is: With your commitment, you give many blood cancer patients something extraordinary - the hope to survive!

The volunteers in our programme help us advance in our day-to-day work. They provide support to patients throughout the donation process. Be it, helping us host donor registration events, raising funds or raising awareness about the importance of blood stem cell donation. Our volunteers play a major role in helping us take another step towards achieving our mission!

Through our volunteering opportunities, you will get to support our key mission and work towards something meaningful. To add to the experience, you will also build confidence, meet new people and develop skills that will help you in any career you choose to pursue. There are a variety of opportunities to be a part of. Fund-raising, building awareness, helping administrative tasks – there’s plenty on offer and plenty to learn.

How being a volunteer has made a difference in your life?

Being a volunteer has given me mental peace, it has reduced by stress, anxiety as well as anger. I feel more connected to the society and I feel like I can sympathise with people and their problems and come up with solutions for the same. It has significantly boosted my self-confidence and has given me a purpose in life because I feel like I have actually contributed to the betterment of the society.

How did you hear about DKMS-BMST and what inspired you to volunteer?

I heard about the organization through an event when they were registering the potential blood stem cell donor at my college. I had lost my granddad to cancer about a month ago and this has taken a very big toll on me as well as my family. I believe a lot of other families who lost their closed ones to cancer also went through the same pain and I wanted to make a difference in the lives of people going through life-threatening conditions such as blood cancer which inspired me to volunteer.

What does volunteering at DKMS-BMST involve?

Volunteering at DKMS-BMST mostly involves spreading awareness about blood cancer and registering people as a potential lifesaver to help give blood cancer patients a second chance at life.

Together we can make a difference!
