Her Mantra - Sickled and Fit

As a warrior, exercising a positive mindset to pain will do more good than harm
There’d surely be crisis, please hang in there and maintain a positive mindset
Surviving the Disorder as a WARRIOR and staying happy is the ultimate goal!
I have totally committed myself to doing this and yes, it has been a bumpy ride and would be less so, if I can get adequate financial support from You. Living in Nigeria is Hard, having sickle cell makes it even harder, ask any warrior how they survive here.

Who We are

Joscef was birthed out of the need to create awareness and to ensure sickle cell warriors get access to quality healthcare
JOSCEF is an NGO that is built around the need to create awareness on SCD,
sensitize people on the need to know their genotype and how it can affect their choices of a spouse.
