This contribution helps to fund the following three areas:
• The actual search, i.e. confirmatory typing of donors, procurement and transportation of
blood samples, etc.
• The “operating cost allowance” that supports the work of the stem cell donor centers.
• The work of the ZKRD.
For prolonged and expensive searches there is a recurring allowance per year. Given that a
suitable donor can be found within a few weeks or months for most patients, the recurring
allowance is seldom claimed.
