Campaign highlight shortage of black people on bone marrow register
27th January 2015

A campaign run by the charity Anthony Nolan and the African-Caribbean Leukaemia Trust is highlighting the shortage of black people on the bone marrow register. 

The organisations say black people are three times less likely to find a donor who is a perfect match and is calling for more African Carribean people to join the register to help rectify this. 

Joining Wake Up London to discuss the campaign, which launches today, was Orin Lewis. He is one of the founders of the trust.
