The Sunflower Fund educates, creates awareness of the need for more donors and raises funds to pay the initial test cost for donors to register on the South African Bone Marrow Registry (SABMR).

The Sunflower Fund strives to increase the South African Bone Marrow Registry to 100 000 donors in each of the four major ethnic groups within South Africa thus reflecting the population demographics of the country. Our aim in the long-term is to recruit 400 000 donors representative of all ethnic groups, offering more hope to those patients who are searching for suitable matches.
