Our Collaborative & Innovative Projects
Special Service Aid
Patients under this category are those in dire need of surgical procedures to support their health and wellbeing.
We analyze and see how we can provide aid depending on factors such as type of surgery and the surgical fees.
Aid package is then provided in the form of part payment of the fees or full sponsorship (subject to foundation funding).
Beneficiaries in this category have received funding for hip replacement surgeries, post amputation skin graft and other minor procedures.
GENOTYPE TESTING CAMPAIGN
Samira Sanusi Sickle Cell Foundation has collaborated with hospitals and other organisations to provide access to genotype tests in rural areas here community outreaches are held to test, sensitize and counsel people.
The Campaigns have been successful in spreading awareness with collaboration from hospitals and organisations like Funtua General Hospital, Aminu Kano Teaching Hospital, AISEC, Global Shapers Kano, Rashid Shekoni Hospital (Jigawa), Dutse General Hospital (Jigawa), Abubakar Tafawa Balewa University Teaching Hospital (Bauchi), Ahmadu Bello University Teaching Hospital (Zaria), Crest Med and Lagos State University Teaching Hospital. Members and Volunteers of the foundation as well as medical and lab personnels of Hospitals participate in taking blood samples for tests, enlightening people and identifying Sickle cell patients in the community who are eventually registered as beneficiaries of the foudation’s medical aid.
Through our Community Development, we have the potential to make a real and positive change in the community. This is one of our key areas of focus here at Samira Sanusi Sickle Cell Foundation, and a source of much success for our Nonprofit Organization. Get in touch with us today and see how you can lend a helping hand with this program.
We have successfully launched a year-round Clothing Drive campaign with donations coming in Nationwide; especially from Abuja, Kaduna, Kano and Lagos. Clothing items such as sweaters, sock, hats and baby clothes have been collected and distributed to Sickle Cell Warriors in Internally Displaced Camps (IDP) across the country and other rural areas we’ve been able to reach.
This project targets the cold season (being the season that affects Sickle Cell Patients the most because of the cold), but runs all year to allow time for collection.
We have dubbed this campaign #ClothingDriveForSC and all publication/Social Media posts and campaigns carry the hashtag

We have kept a good fellowship with a network of Sickle Cell Warriors, Care-givers, the Medical Community and interested members of the public through our Support System - a WhatsApp platform to bring people together, discuss mutual terms and share information as well as simply becoming buddies. This is ideally a sense of togetherness needed in our communities for everybody to feel safe, accepted, encouraged, loved and cared for.
Session activities include keeping up with our Warriors, discussing matters and sharing care methods as well as holding talk seminars from experts and like-minded people.
