Speaking during the sensitization visits, the TSSF founder, Amb. Victoria Akujuobi, described sickle cell warriors as “Special Beings”, who needs love, care, listening ear, support and attention, hence the need to collectively join hands to stop all forms of stigmatization and discrimination against them in the society. 

She said that The Sickler’s Survivors Forum (TSSF) believe in turning the health issues of warriors into believing a possibility of a good health through the power of their mind. 

“We have started our Campaign from Schools to Churches. We will also have a program captioned Operation Celebrate the Sickle Cell Warriors.
