FAMILY ECONOMIC EMPOWERMENT FOR POVERTY ALLEVIATION, Sickle Cell management and care has a big financial burden to the affected families. This burden is as a result of the frequent hospitalizations of the persons living with sickle cell, to the Care-takers /family members there is a loss of productive time due to work absenteeism which leads to loss of employment in most cases. Our economic empowerment program enables us to promote poverty alleviation through agribusiness and art and crafts. This program is in its initial stages and it is spear headed by our Sickle Cell Family Forum.
