Harmattan: SCPHPC Donates Cardigans To Less Privileged Sicklers




By: Femi Mustapha


Worried by the effects of Harmattan seasons on sickle cell patients, which might trigger more crises, the  Sickle Cell Patients Health Promotion Center (SCPHPC)  Kaduna has distributed sweaters and protective dresses to over one thousand fewer privileged sicklers of the  Centre to reduce the effects of cold on them.

The founder of the Center Hajia Badiyya Magaji Inuwa disclosed this during the distribution in  Kaduna yesterday.

Hajia Badiyya said the Centre distributed sweaters, headgear, socks and other cold protective wear to the children to protect them against extreme cold occasioned by the Harmattan.

She explained that  Sickle Cell Patients because of their health challenges need to be protected from the harsh Harmattan.

Hajia Badiyya disclosed that the centre has over three thousand fewer privileged sicklers on its register for routine and other assistance.

Colder weather she stressed tends to bring an increase in viral infections, such as the common cold and influenza.
