Soronko Academy celebrates Sickle Cell Day

19th June is World Sickle Cell Day. World Sickle Cell Day was established by the United Nations General Assembly in 2008 in order to increase the awareness about the sickle cell disease and its cure among the common public. Sickle cell disease has become a common and foremost genetic disease worldwide which is must to cure through the fast awareness campaign, curable activities, early diagnosis and management.

I am proud to introduce the amazing work one of our mentees has started. Esther our mentee has sickle cell.She created a foundation and this website to address the issue. ( http://www.charisfdn.org ). 

She came to Soronko Academy with no coding skills and little knowledge in technology. Esther built her foundation website herself from scratch.We are proud of what Esther has achieved by learning to code and creating a voice and platform to address sickle cell.
