The disease is most prevalent among people of African, Afro- Caribbean, Asian and Mediterranean Heritage. Besides the burden of the condition, people affected by Sickle Cell suffer social rejection, prejudice and are often times stigmatized. This consequently leads them to isolation.
OUR PURPOSE is the advancement of health in Scotland for people suffering from Sickle Cell anaemia and other blood disorders by bringing sufferers of Sickle-Cell anaemia, as well as those with other blood disorders, and their families together in order to eradicate isolation, social stigma and prejudice.
THE HOPE PROJECT SCOTLAND stands as a family. Together we will conquer our shock, disbelief, anger and fear.
