"APLSCD" rejoices over the successful delivery of her member- By Augustus Bill



The Anambra State, commissioner of Health Dr. Joe Akadike celebrates
with the Association of People Living with Sickle Cell Disorder
(APLSCD) over the successful delivery of one of her members, who was
delivered of a baby boy.

The coordinator of the Association Aisha Edwards was so elated with
joy while speaking to the Press after she visited the baby at Iyienu
hospital. According to her the successful delivery of the baby is not
just a good news but also a testimony to the fact that sickle Cell
sufferers are not dead and weak as the society labels them.

" I am so delighted at this great news. They say we are weak, but we
are not. Labour involves pain and strength. How can we pull through
that if we were as weak as they speculated. Yes! We did pull through
labour; she was delivered of a bouncing baby boy. A huge testimony for
all sufferers" she said with beaming smiles and giggles.

In his reaction, the commissioner sent his regards to the Association,
promising to work in tandem with them towards the realization of her
goals. He further reiterated that the state government led by Chief
Willie Obiano and his wife Chief Mrs. Ebelechukwu Obiano would
continue to extend their unfettered support to the organization both
financial and moral as they have always done in previous times.

The mother of the baby Mrs. Oluchukwu Nwafor who hailed from Ukpo in
Dunukofia Local Government Area was so gladdened with joy and
appreciated the Association for standing by her and other sickle Cell
Association members each time they needed help. According to her,
putting to bed was a herculean task for her, but she successfully
pulled through with the Grace of God. She urged her fellow members and
other sickle Cell patients that are yet to identify with the
Association to do so, as it is the only association that has and can
speak for them.

In the same vein, the coordinator of the Association continued her
moral crusade on churches and government to enhance their evangelism
and support towards the welfare of people living with sickle Cell
disorder. In her words sickle Cell is not an accidental disease but
one born out of ignorance of couples, and so the patients of the
disorder shouldn't be treated like filth but needs love, care and
support to live through their lives that is already embedded with
pain.
