We Foster the Sickle Cell Carriers

The Babajide Olowodola Foundation was founded in February 2014  by Rev. Babajide Olowodola as a direct response to the suffering experienced by individuals with SCD and their families. He was concerned about the lack of understanding and the inadequacy of support for individuals born with sickle cell diseases and their families.

Our Objectives

The primary objective of the foundation therefore is to help people with SCD live healthier, more productive lives and reduce the suffering caused by sickle-cell disease (SCD) to patients and their families. The Foundation is committed to helping people survive, recover from and prevent complications related to sickle-cell disease (SCD).

Our Mission

The Babajide Olowodola Foundation seeks to ameliorate the harsh psychosocial trauma that patients of sickle-cell disease and their families experience.

The mission of the Foundation is the pursuit of the following principles:

E

Possibility: expand the perspective of individuals with sickle-cell disorder, their family, friends and support network to make them aware of life’s possibilities and instill a sense of hope for the future.

E

Responsibility: empower people with sickle-cell diseases to adopt or maintain a healthy lifestyle; take steps to prevent and control complications and learn ways to cope with pain.

E

Support: An individual is dramatically influenced by their support system. The Foundation seeks to create around each person with sickle-cell disease a community including health workers, teachers and friends that understand their condition and be a source of help when things are bad.

Keys to Success

Establish strong educational programs to train people with sickle-cell disease to live productively, their families and friends, health workers, teachers and the general public.

Establish strong support network with the schools, hospitals, churches etc., to change the cultural attitude to the disorder.

Launch a series of fundraising activities that will successfully fund the expanding program.
