Located in Abuja, Nigeria, BEULAH Sickle Cell Foundation works to control, lessen, and eventually abolish sickle cell disease. Founded by Mrs. Josephine Olunaike, a sickle cell warrior herself, they provide their recipients with free consultation and medical care. In order to better prepare the recipients to contribute to society, they also help them acquire vocational skills.
In February 2023, Beulah SCF collaborated with the Brain and Body Foundation on the Project SCD Nigeria initiative.
This partnership will provide sickle cell warriors in Abuja, Nigeria with potentially life-saving nutrients. This is part of our year-long goal of providing Citamil supplements (a combination of vitamin C, zinc, and vitamin D3) to 2000 children with sickle cell disease.
Update: Project SCD Nigeria
As at, 31st July 2023, Beulah Sickle Cell Foundation received 120 bottles of Citamil and so far, have distributed to 52 Beneficiaries.
A total of 42 warriors who had previously benefitted from the Citamil had access to it in June while July, which was our 4th anniversary of the clinic (that came with so much funfair and goodies) brought in the highest number of warriors we had ever had in all our four years.
It didn’t go round, so we gave about 52 Warriors most of whom had been on it.
On 17th July 2023, the number of beneficiaries noting improvements are about 24, most of which were those with leg ulcer and other wounds. Testimonies abound with months of usage, especially among those with leg ulcers and those recovering from surgeries; those with wounds testified they felt CITAMIL was responsible for the fast healing they seemed to be getting.
