Our friend Theo Clarke at NHS Blood and Transplant has asked if we could raise awareness of their drive to find blood donors for their Sickle Cell Anaemia Drive.
Sickle Cell Anaemia is most common and fastest growing genetic blood disorder in England and the UK.
England and the UK need 40,000 new Black donors to stop the pain experienced by Black patients with Sickle Cell disease. They need life-saving blood from Black donors, which will provide the closest match to their own.
The percentage of finding a match is 90%!!
