Sickle cell

Nigeria leads the world in the number of cases of Sickle Cell Disease (SCD). Some interventions have proven beneficial toward improving outcomes, especially in Nigeria and that includes treatment with a drug called Hydroxycarbamide. 

  • The OFNC has been very generous in supporting the improvement of outcomes of those living with SCD in keeping with its mission to provide relief of persons in conditions of need, hardship, or distress.  
  • Historically, branch fundraising and proceeds from the conference charity dinner have supported those affected, including a large donation to the UK Sickle Cell Society.
