On 03/Jun/2019 / In Medical News

A non-Governmental organisation, 05 Initiative, founded by Delta State governor’s wife, Edith Okowa, has donated the 13th sickle cell referral centre to the Delta  State government. Mrs. Okowa, during the commissioning of the centre in Asaba at the weekend, said: “This centre brings to 13 the number of sickle cell clinics established by the 05 
 
Initiative in its relatively short history; the other 12 are located at Ughelli, Sapele, Oleh, Kwale, Eku, Patani, Koko, Otu-Jeremi, Agbor, Orerokpe, Issele-Uku and  Umunede. “Each of these clinics is fitted with modern equipment, quality furniture, and manned by skilled personnel because, as some of us here may be aware, sickle cell  patients face peculiar health challenges, including episodes of pain, frequent infections, delayed growth and vision problem, not to mention the social stigma  associated with the disorder in our environment.”
