    I am a Ugandan female citizen aged 41years,a teacher by profession and with six siblings.I also offer help for the sickle cell victims.This is one of the most serious vulnerable groups which is not being catered for,yet its very serious.It has affected two of my siblings, my forth and sixth born,but its very painful and very expensive to maintain these people. With experience from my very own children, I had to give in the little i get to at least help my fellow parents with fees and lunch for those sick children.
    My comment is in form of a question- Why is it that Sickle cell disease hasn’t been addressed as one of the killer diseases as the case is with AIDS?
    Is there hope of finding people to fund people with CBOs catering for Sickle Cell people?
