We are pleased to announce that on the 24/10/2020 Sickle Cell Awareness Project (SCAP) was launched. The turn up was very good and we worked under the government guidelines of Covid-19. We had individuals with sickle cell, relatives to people with sickle cell, individuals who have a trait and. The group was composed of mainly young people from the black African background. We invite people from black Caribbean and Asian backgrounds to reach out to us
The broadness of the group led to the theme of our pilot skint.
The pilot skint will focus on the experiences of those affected by sickle cells anemia as compared to their counterparts who do not have sickle cell anemia or might have any other disease/condition.
By the end of November 2020, we plan to have our pilot skint live on our social media platforms and we want to use it to guide our journey while putting this project together.
The aim for SCAP is to educate as many people as possible about sickle cell anemia. To create a more supportive environment in the healthcare service, workplaces and the education system for people with sickle cell anemia.
We need all the support we can get, so we request that you sign up to join at firstname.lastname@example.org
