Medical history

Chronic genetic sickle cell disease

Her story

Kékéli suffers from sickle cell disease. This is a chronic, incurable genetic disorder that affects hemoglobin. Evrard, our Head nurse, referred Kékéli to us, as her family has very limited means. All of their savings went into medical care. In fact, she often needs blood transfusions. She is also prone to infections and is very fragile. We decided to support her by financing her medical care.

Kékéli lives with her parents and has an 11-year-old sister. Her brother died of sickle cell disease 4 years ago, at the age of 12.
