Hassan is 16 years old; he attends secondary school at Mabuchi, Abuja. He lives with his family at Mabuchi community in Abuja. Hassan was diagnosed with sickle cell anemia when he was 2 years old. His aunt tells us “he is always sick”
His family told us they are scared for his life.
Whenever Hassan starts having a crisis, his family doesn’t hesitate to take him to the hospital. He has never had a blood transfusion. Hassan said that he is very grateful that his friends and family do not treat him differently rather they encourage him to be as normal as them and show him love, and because of that he has a reason live.
His family makes sure he eats healthy meals regularly and takes his medicines daily. He said the love and compassion he gets from his loved ones is everything to him.
