Jikwoyi Community Outreach
On September 4, 2016, MAISCEF carried out an outreach in Jikwoyi, a semi-urban community of Abuja, the Federal Capital Territory.
The outreach was sponsored by Maidunama sickle cell foundation in partnership with the Sisters of the Nativity (SON) Hospital, Jikwoyi.
A total of 25 sickle cell patients were identified and given medication that will last them three months.
A major outcome of this outreach was the partnership relationship entered into by MAISCEF and the hospital (SON) to run a sickle cell clinic in the hospital in addition to holding a Sickle Cell Support Group meeting for every month in the clinic.
This arrangement has been running for over a year now since 3rd September 2016
