Sickle Cell disease is very prevalent in Nigeria. Since Nigeria is a developing country, many of those with sickle cell are not able to afford the medical attention necessary to live with the symptoms and effects of sickle cell. This results in the life expectancy to be much lower in Nigeria than it is in developed countries. Hope for Sickle Cell Organization teams up with clinics in Nigeria in order to give towards the cause. This money goes towards the financial support of those patients who are in direst need of medical assistance.
