As part of SCHAF’s goals in awareness creation and advocacy, the unheard cries, woes, pains and burdens of SCD adult individuals and those of the caregivers of children are currently being recorded and collated for publication soon. These recordings are blinded with no names of individuals and after appropriate voluntary consent. The experiences and opinions of professional caregivers, researchers and scientists that come in frequent contact with these people will also be relayed in the book. The essence of this project is to voice out the travails these patients and their caregivers go through in order to create awareness and solicit help and support for them from the masses, government, private agencies and philanthropic individuals. If you are a sufferer from Sickle cell disease and you want to air your story to the public without your name pls contact SCHAF @
