#MeTo #YouTo. We(you) might not have the sickle cell trait but I believe you have had a very close friend or family member fall in death to this disorder or perhaps battling with this one crises after the order. And yes, some have overcome it with a miracle.
In Nigeria, Over 150,000 children are born each year with sickle cell anemia (Hb SS). The disorder is regarded as a silent baby killer as an estimated 50% to 80% of infants born with the disorder die before the age of 5 years. Sickle cell anemia, or sickle cell disorder (SCD), is a group of disorders that cause red blood cells to become misshapen and break down.
With sickle cell disorder, an inherited group of disorders, red blood cells contort into a sickle shape. The cells die early, leaving a shortage of healthy red blood cells (sickle cell anaemia) and can block blood flow causing pain (sickle cell crisis). Infections, pain and fatigue are symptoms of sickle cell disorder while treatments include medication, blood transfusions and rarely a bone-marrow transplant.
In an efforts to fight this health challenges and as part of the commitment to the advancement of crowdfunding in Nigeria, donate-ng.com initiated “1k4sickle” to encourage people to donate N1,000 ($4) to charities and NGO’s raising awareness for sickle cell anemia in Nigeria as well as supporting individuals living with sickle cell. We are working with NGOs in Nigeria to encourage donation to help support people living with SCD.
Your N1,000 would go a long way in reaching out to individuals living with sickle cell anemia and support to charities championing the advocacy.
There is a limitless amount of ways to make this world a better place and all it will cost you is to visit our medical fundraising page at https://donate-ng.com/1k4sickle and select a campaign of interest to donate to.
Also share with us some of your experiences.
