Our programs include provision of sickle cell wellness packs that could be used at home or in hospital to support children and young people living with sickle cell.
FOLIC ACID PROJECT
We know access to folate is important for those living with sickle cell as it helps make new red blood cells, replaces any depleted folate and reduces risks of anaemia and complications. Daily oral intake of folic acid is advised for those living with sickle cell.
SICKLE CELL SCREENING
An outreach clinic in rural Abuja communities in May 2021. We partnered with Epiconsult Diagnostics to set up a spoke mobile screening clinic in Mabushi village where every child and young person who attended were screened for their genotype and blood group.
WELLNESS PACKS DELIVERY 2020
We are so thankful to have had the opportunity to grace a little smile on the faces of 40 children and teenagers living with sickle cell during the Christmas festive season.
Home monitoring and self management kits including education (coming soon) will include oximeters and blood pressure machines.
