RAISE THE AWARENESS

Every year, over 300,000 children worldwide are born with the sickle cell disease, a genetic abnormality of the red blood cells in which they take a present of "sickle"- shaped appearance. Over half of these children die before the age of five.

Our mission is to raise awareness about Sickle Cell and provide knowledge to support those with the disease or trait of it. We also aim to sponsor research and development of solutions to cure the disease.

Blood transfusions can lessen pain for the children and adults who live with the disease.  Some patients require transfusions as often as monthly – making the need for blood donations  constant.
