SICKLE CELL ANEMIA AND SUFFERINGS OF CHRIST REFLECTION:

Sickle Cell Disorder has remained one of the most neglected health challenges in Nigeria today, as Persons Living with the disorder are oftentimes neglected by the Government, Discriminated, Dehumanized and stigmatized by the Society.

It is gravely painful that we are perceived weak, even when our Brain power towers above our peers. We are denied job Opportunities and Sense of Belonging  because of our health status, a circumstance that we never created ourselves but out of the ignorance of Our parents. 

We are subjected to Excruciating  Crisis Pain, Various degree of Ulcers especially that of the Legs, Organ failures (Kidney), Cardiac Arrest (Acute Chest Syndrome), Early Stroke Condition (Paralysis),  Nervous  breakdown, Poor vision Courtesy of Drug Adverse effects, Physically Challenged (AVF) and sometimes in advanced aged memory loss. 

Yet We are not giving the Chance to live as the society expects us to die at any moment, but we continue to strive and live beyond their expectations. 

Today a single Crisis Episode Managed in a good Hospital can cost us on the average, a total sum of N50k without drugs Given to you and sometimes this Crisis can occur more than twice in Two months Once you find yourself in difficult and Challenging Situations, especially when welfare, Emotional Trauma, Discrimination and stigmatization are associated with the Sickle Cell Person. 

We don't need pity for our cause, we need empathy, Sense of Belonging, and empowerment because we can fend for ourselves, we are not Outrightly disabled and we are not Beggars either. 
We Only Pleading for our rights to be protected Through Sickle Cell Law. 

We also need employers to stop Discriminating or  stigmatising us during employment, we as well Pray that our mothers henceforth Should stop being ashamed of us or abandoning us publicly at the mercy of the insensitive society.

we will Continue to Cry to the Government to have mercy on us and enact a law for us, Just like prisoners (Criminals) who sometimes are giving State  pardon,  Likewise Sicklers as innocent as they are, have served enough Lifetime Sentence and Penance for their Parents Sake therefore More than any other person deserve Mercy and freedom From the Societal Touture.

Please Dear Reader, Above all We need you to Support our cause, by adding your voice, time, talent, fund and anything you can to make our lives better within the time God has granted us.

REMEMBER THAT CHRIST DIED FOR THE SAKE OF MANKIND WHILE SICKLERS SUFFER AND DIE FOR THE SAKE OF THE PARENTS IGNORANT.
