“Life is given to us, we earn
it by giving.”

– Rabindranath Tagore

Together, we can HELP


South Asian Marrow Association of Recruiters (SAMAR) is a community based Network member of the National Marrow Donor Program (NMDP).

We serve patients who need a hematopoietic stem cell transplant for leukemia, fatal blood disorders and other conditions requiring a cellular transplant for an improved life. Our focus is the South Asian community (people from India, Afghanistan, Bangladesh, East Africa, Guyana, Nepal, Pakistan, Sri Lanka, and West Indies) and other minority groups, such as African Americans, Asians/Pacific Islanders and Hispanics.

Mission Statement:
To create an informed society of individuals who would make a conscious decision to become committed volunteer marrow/blood stem cell donors and be available to donate marrow/blood stem cells if they match a patient.

Holding a clear focus, SAMAR’s mission is to facilitate a process of education, tissue typing and donor registry enrollment as a means to ensure that no global citizen is ever denied a lifesaving marrow/blood stem cell transplant solely due to the lack of a genetically specific donor.
