Judith Ojonugwa Sickle Cell Foundation

As an NGO that stands for advocacy and management of sickle cell we are rising above the challenges by setting up systems to continue to tackle sickle cell

Sickle cell comes with lots of challenges from hospital vistis and doctor's appointments, to stigmatization, use of routine drugs daily
advocates about sickle cell and educate on the importance of knowing ones genotype and to fight for the inclusion of sickle cell warriors having proper jobs and being recognized in the society.

We must stop the stigma while making proper efforts to stem and curb the disease, for quality healthcare and research for better treatment and care

A message From our Founder

We can better understand sickle cell anemia if we consider knowing our genotype and educating others as well

Nigeria records the highest number of sickle cell births every year 150,000 babies are born

In August 2019, I had a surgery. The zeal to start enlightening people about sickle cell was birthed, it was so clear that I was nurturing a beautiful cause 

Just like youngsters we don't have all of the answers yet, but we do want to develop and inspire sickle cell warrior
