Start of care
Chronic genetic sickle cell disease
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.

Our little Kékéli came to the center as she was suffering from intense joint pain. We gave her a strong anti-inflammatory and an anti-anemic medication recommended in such cases. She is now doing much better!

Kékéli, who was suffering from a digestive parasitosis at the beginning of the month, is now doing much better! We received her at the center and gave her a school supply kit for the new school year.
