What is Anaq Foundation All About
ANAQ Foundation For Sickle Cell And Nutrition is a non-governmental organisation (NGO) formed to take up the challenge of bringing to the attention of the nation the silent effects of sickle cell as well as effects of malnutrition on adults and children, who are the very people, who constitute the country.
Recognizing that the elementary stages in the development of infants are crucial to their future well-being of the children, ANAQ Foundation have been campaigning to sensitize the public on Sickle Cell Disease, the importance of the sickle cell screening for newly born babies and adults who are ignorant about the disease.
Knowing their status and that of their children and themselves will help parents to adopt and strictly follow any treatment regimen prescribed by their physicians.
