As part of activities to mark the World Sickle Cell Day (WSCD), we hosted an outreach for children living with sickle cell disease in Lagos.

People from all over Lagos of different ages and economic backgrounds attended to benefit from the program which was jointly organized by the Brain and Body Foundation (BBF), The Federal Ministry of Health (FMOH), and Sickle Cell Advocacy and Management Initiative (SAMI).

Reporters and camera crew from Nigeria’s top four TV Stations – Channels Television, Nigerian Television Authority (NTA), Africa Independent Television (AIT), and TVC News – were all in attendance to cover the event.

BBF provided supplements for over 300 beneficiaries, some of whom have been beneficiaries of the foundation for a few years and opted to give their testimonials.
