The  Sickle Cell Patients  Health  Promotion  Center (SCPHPC)  Kaduna has distributed sweaters and protective dresses to less  Privileged  Sicklers of  the  Centre

to reduce the effects of Harmattan 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, head gears, socks and other cold protective wears to the children to protect them against extreme cold occasioned by the Harmattan.


She  explained that  Sickle Cell Patients because of their health challenges needs to be protected from the harsh  Harmattan and that is why the Centre decided to assist them with cold protective cloths, saying from now till January February 2023, the weather is not going to be friendly.


“Crisis  were most common during the season as a result of the extreme dry, dusty wind blowing, especially in the northern part of the country and stressed the need for help to the needy”.


“There was the need for Nigerians to be their brothers’ keeper by donating protective clothes to the less-privileged, especially the homeless children who spent the night in the open with nothing to protect them from the current harsh Harmattan weather.


“We discovered that, some children were in need of Harmattan cloth and when the wind blows, it causes health problems to the respiratory system such as asthma, bronchitis, as well as conjunctivitis, cough and catarrh.


Hajia  Badiyya  said materials were purchased from donations from her friends, family members and Associates whom she  contacted on behalf of the Sickle Cell patients


She express joy at the overwhelming response she got, saying  truly Nigerians are their brothers keepers.
