While conducting awareness about Sickle Cell Disease (SCD) in schools, students are taught what sickle cell disease is (which is; a genetic condition that affects the body’s red blood cells.), signs and symptoms, care and treatment and how it can be prevented. SCD occurs when a child receives two sickle cell genes; one from each parent. In someone living with this disease, the red blood cells become hard and sticky and look like a C-shaped farm tool called a “sickle”. We believe that, once awareness about SCD is created, ignorance about it can be minimized.
