Education

We educate warriors in under served communities in different ways.

 

We provide educational  books that give information to parents, children and young adults about sickle cell. 

 

We educate face to face on self managing at home and spotting the signs that need hospital care. We use Nigerian Pidgin English and sometimes get translators to translate in the local Nigerian dialect of the families we talk to. 

Raising Awareness

Untold stories

Dr Kumar, a global health physician and photographer, is sharing images and stories of challenge and inspiration from around the globe to raise awareness for sickle cell disease and help change how the world sees it. You’ll see how people with the condition overcome challenges, what gives them hope, and what keeps them motivated. 

I am number 17

1 in 17 people in the UK will be affected with a rare disease. I am number 17 is a campaign to help the voices of those with a rare disease to be heard.   

PORTRAITS OF 
PAIN

Advocating

We also work in partnerships with other grassroots charities to reach out to other parts of the country 

 

And we advocate for warriors through photography and telling their stories
