Tonymay Foundation is a non-profit organisation incorporated with the Nigerian Corporate Affairs Commission in 2011. The foundation was borne out of the urgent need to create awareness about sickle cell disorder (SCD) and address the lack of proper health management of the disorder in Nigeria. The foundation is focused on addressing the major factors that are contributing to the number of new recorded cases of sickle cell disorder which is ignorance about SCD and the importance of genotype especially for people in sub-urban and rural areas. Anthony and Mary were two warriors lost to the fight against sickle cell disorder and the foundation was established in their honour.
The organisation is currently embarking on awareness campaigns in various parts of the country to address high level of ignorance about the disorder. A sickle cell awareness campaign has been scheduled to hold in Ketu, Lagos state, THIS SATURDAY, 6th October, 2018. It will begin by 8.00am.
The foundation needs volunteers to distribute awareness fliers and talk to people about the need to know their genotypes. Volunteers should be skilled at communicating effectively and have basic knowledge about sickle cell disorder.
This opening is for volunteers resident in Lagos and are able to be at Ketu on Saturday.
