Camp Jumoke helping kids cope with sickle cell disease
There are unexpected things that happen that you really can’t prepare for.
Away from home for the first time attending a two-week summer camp, Johanne Konan was expecting a big hug from her two daughters – Elisa and Ines — on their return.
“When the bus pulled up, I thought they would have come running to me, saying ‘We missed you mom and we love you’,” said the Ivory Coast immigrant. “Instead, the first words out of their mouths were, ‘Can we go back’. I was stunned.”
After the initial shock wore off, Konan and George Ofori were relieved to know that their girls – they were born with sickle cell – relished their time at Camp Jumoke.
