Managing Sickle Cell Disease in Sierra Leone is a challenge and the infant mortality rate is high. According to the WHO, “the majority of children with the most severe form of the disease die before the age of five, usually from an infection or severe anemia. The doctors in Sierra Leone, do their part to care for Sickle Cell patients but in many cases, this is done on a volunteer basis and sometimes with very limited resources.
HACU has partnered with the Sickle Cell Disease society and with your help through this campaign, our goal is to provide essential care kits for distribution to Sickle Cell patients as well as access to education through Technology. Thank you for your generosity!
