Who we are

APLSCD is an association that caters for the medical and welfare needs of persons living with sickle cell disorder, and dully registered with Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission with the registration number CAC/IT/86143

Founded in June, 2015

APLSCD was founded in June 2015 by the coordinator Aisha Edwards after witnessing the neglect and stigmatization meted on persons living with sickle cell disorder. Being a victim of this neglect and stigmatization from NGOs, Government and the society, it became not pertinent to have an association where all members are victims of this disorder, to cater for their needs, and create a loud voice for these persons in the society.

Sensitization Campaigns

We began a wide outreach and sensitization campaign covering all the local government areas in Anambra State and spanning to Enugu, Rivers, Adamawa and Ebonyi states, evident from the attendance of sickle cell persons from these states during the World Sickle Day, which was organized by APLSCD at Nnamdi Azikiwe University, Awka, Anambra State.

Book Publications

We have printed books, which contained vital information on the sickle cell disorder and our activities thus far. Ten thousand (10, 000) copies of this book has already been circulated across the LGAs in Anambra state, and further production of Thirty Thousand Copies (30, 000) are underway for onward distribution across all missionary schools in Anambra State as already approved by the Catholic and Anglican Bishops in the State.

It is my pleasure and honour to be associated with APLSCD. The Association provides a fitting platform for reflections on the challenges of living with sickle cell disorder.

There is hardly a worthier mission than showing solidarity with those that are challenged in one form or another. That’s what APLSCD gladly does.

The Association has enriched the mindset of the sidelined individuals in the society. It has constantly given hope to those living with sickle cell disorder. I’m glad to be a part of this wonderful and beautiful setup.
