Sickle Cell & Young Stroke Survivors

Sickle cell - Behind closed doors

Sickle cell anaemia is a blood disorder that mainly affects the Afro/Caribbean communities. Many have heard about it but don't know much about it because they see people when they are well enough to be seen. No one knows or sees the anguish, pain and hospitalisations that goes on behind closed doors

Situation

The main problem is the ignorance surrounding Sickle cell anaemia. As a charity that has worked with children, young people and the families over the past 11 years, we find that young people are being hindered to share their illness and access care and support that they need.

Solution

By letting people understand what goes on behind closed doors, it will give a better understanding into the isolation, fears, anxieties, hospitalisations that these young people and their families face.
