This World Sickle Cell Day, 1K4Sickle Campaign is bringing awareness to the disorder, and to the struggles of those living with it.

The folks at 1K4Sickle found that not enough people know that Nigeria has one of the highest numbers of sickle cell births in the world.

Over 150,000 children are born each year with sickle cell anaemia (HbSS), and an estimated 50-80% of infants born with the disorder die before the age of 5 years.

Because most people living with the disorder do not have the financial strength required to live with it, 1K4Sickle Campaign wants you to donate and help save lives.

You can donate to help people living with sickle cell here.

Watch them share their journey so far:
