Children Sickle Cell Foundation (CSCF) is an independent not-for-profit, community based organization, dedicated to improving the quality of life of persons with sickle cell disease. CSCF was founded in 2001 with the guidance of our Patron Dr. K.C. Wafula and a group of parents who had children with sickle cell. They founded CSCF out of frustrations faced by both adult and children sickle cell disease patients as well as care givers. The motto of the organization, “Turning Sickles into Smiles” aims to cope with the overwhelming obstacles and emotional challenges that are a part of living with a serious, chronic disease that is under-funded, undervalued and the target of much ignorance, prejudice and discouraging empty complaints and rife stigma.
