We’ve been trying to help through an organisation we founded but it is not enough. We need support from fellow Kenyans and most importantly, the government. The government should at least ensure the sickle cell anemia drugs are cheap and easily accessible to sicklers. We founded an organisation to assist with the aforementioned but that is not enough, we need more help,” Akuku Danger disclosed.
