KESCA lauds KECHEMA's 300 slots to members for free medical treatment

From Ismail Adebayo, Birnin Kebbi

Kebbi State Sickle Cell Association (KESCA) has lauded the state contributory healthcare agency KECHEMA for registering 300 of its members for free medical treatment in the state's health facilities.

Speaking during the monthly members forum of the association, it's state coordinator, Hajiya Hadiza Shantali said the gesture by KECHEMA would reduce the suffering of the sickle cell patients in the state because they can now access the facilities free of charge.

She said "There are over 2,882 registered sickle cell patients in kebbi State and we are still registering more. They all need medical attention. We are happy with KECHEMA's gesture to register 300 of our members for free medical treatment.

We commended Dr Jafar Augie for this, he is a kind man. May Allah guide him right. He has really taken the burden off many of our members, their parents and guidance.

Hajiya Hadiza said sickle cell usually comes with challenges and because of this the forum has decided to mentor, distribute drugs to members and educate them on what they are expected to face and how to carry on with their lives.

 "It should not be a burden or reason for any sickle cell patients not to live normal life. They are warriors, warriors don't give up"' she said.
