Wear Red For Sickle Cell Day
The World Sickle Cell Day is on 19th of June. The wear red for sickle cell day was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2008, to raise awareness about the sickle cell disease globally. Sickle cell affects us all directly or indirectly and it has affected and continues to affect many families who have lost family members as a result of the condition.
Contrary to common knowledge, people in other countries are also affected like India, Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Arabic Peninsula, Brazil, Surinam, Guiana, Southern Italy, Greece and black people in diaspora. Studies have shown that Nigeria has the largest population of people with Sickle Cell Disease in the world, and with over 150,000 Nigerian babies born with sickle cell every year.
