This project is preparing for fundraising. Click Like to show your support, or Follow for updates on this project's journey.

Right now Sickle cell disease is the largest genetic blood disorder in the world and we have the largest number of patients with the condition being under the age of six years old. In order to raise awareness, spread cheer and to also encourage active play we as an organisation are doing a massive toydrive which will be donated to these children. We hope to raise the funds to be able to donate to children at both hospitals while raising the profile of the condition by spreading awareness.

What we'll deliver:

  • We will provide toys to children with the condition that are currently affected by the Illness
  • Help spread awareness for Sickle cell which is often known as the silent killer
  • Spread cheer and encourage active play for children in hospital with the condition
  • Provide a platform for these children to actively tell thier stories breaking the stigma attached to the condition

Why it's a great idea:

This is a great Idea as not only does it uplift, encourage and spread cheer to the most vulnerable patients who are suffering from the condition, this campaign will also encourage positive play, being active and also raise awareness for a condition that is often not talked about within the local and wider community.

Steps to get it done:


We would also would use the funds to create more awareness to distribute a nationalised program to schools, universities and educational institutions who have children with the condition as well as promote a better understanding and support to children, parents and families that have been affected by having the condition. We will also try to play a part in introducing positive change and to challenge peoples thought processes about the condition in able to support, care and understand the plight in especially children that have the condition.
