SICKLE CELL ANEMIA AFFECTS OVER 4 MILLION PEOPLE IN NIGERIA ALONE,

THE HIGHEST IN THE WORLD.

Of the 150,000 born annually, It is estimated that only about
25% may live to see their fifth birthday.

CHALLENGE ONE

IGNORANCE

Due to ignorance, they suffer extreme pain, sorrow, low self-esteem and stigmatization and many lack proper and affordable medical care in a disorder that is financially and socially draining.

CHALLENGE TWO

STRESSED FINANCES

When an uneducated family has to take care of not one but sometimes up five children with Sickle Cell Disorder, they can hardly afford basic needs let alone medical needs, so there is need for a proper support system.

CHALLENGE THREE

LOW MEDICAL SUPPORT

The lack of proper medical support, halfway house/shelters, mentoring and empowerment programmes, therefore does not help in any way to mitigate the suffering of people with the disorder and their families.

WITH 25% SURVIVAL RATE
after 5 Years of 150,000 children born per year.

Then there is an urgent need to provide adequate interpersonal and affordable basic management health care and empowerment programs to people with Sickle Cell Disorder.

A country that has 1 in 4 people carrying the sickle cell trait, necessitates educating the society (especially the youth population) about the importance of knowing their genotype, so they can make informed choices.
