Here are some of the most asked questions concerning Sickle Cell Foundation of West Africa. We will be adding more questions as we receive them.

 01  How do I seek help from your foundation?

Most patients are discovered by our foundation scouts (clinic workers) when they make their routine community relationship tours. But we often get calls from parents/relatives of critically ill patients, and as a rule, we do not turn away any patient, especially babies and young children. So, the best way to get in touch with us is to call our local clinic numbers (which will be published soon) or contact our corporate office in Columbus, Ohio, U.S.A. The number is  (614) 702-7920. We do ask that if you have an emergency, please do not call this number but call your local health or physician office. This is because, this office is in the United States and there's no way we can get to you.




 02  As a patient, do I need to pay to use your clinic?

No. All services are provided free of charge. Notwithstanding, we urge the patients who can or who have relatives that can donate, to donate to Sickle Cell Foundation of West Africa, so we can continue to help others who need help.



 03  How do I donate to Sickle Cell Foundation of West Africa?

On this website (by clicking on the "Donate/Support" button), or you can send funds via Western Union and Money gram (Please, email us with the confirmation number), or simply mail your payment (Traveler's Cheques, Bank Check, Cashier's Check, Money Order, and Prepaid Gift cards) to:

Sickle cell Foundation of West Africa
2021 E. Dublin Granville Road
Suite 276

Columbus, OH 43229
United States of America 


 04  What if a patient is an orphan?

Orphans are very dear to us, and we will do everything possible to make sure they get the help they need. If possible, we may retain them at our clinics until the government or adoption agencies finds them a willing and suitable family to adopt them.

 05  Has the current worldwide pandemic affected your operations?

Not at all. If anything else, it has made us more resilient. We are fully persuaded that nothing will hinder us from fulfilling our calling and obligations to eradicate (or at least control) sickle cell in West Africa, and to give current sufferers a path to a normal life.
