Aim of the project: To carry out operations so that people with sickle cell disease, which has affected their joints, can walk properly.
Partner: Monkole Hospital.
Partners: Private donors.
Twenty-five percent of the population in the Democratic Republic of Congo has the carrier gene for sickle cell disease. This disease is a type of anaemia that can cause, among other things, limb deformities.
At Monkole Hospital, these people are treated so that they can walk properly and improve their quality of life.
Help us to improve their quality of life.
