Sickle Cell Disease has to do with a group of inherited red blood cells disorders and It is a global concern and that is why everyone is usually advised and counselled about their choice of partners and this is why celebrated Nigerian Actress, Mercy Aigbe is also lending her voice to this cause by admonishing people to know their genotype before choosing a life partner. This light skinned actress lost her sister to this disease and has just been endorsed as an ambassador to a sickle cell initiative campaign.
The Dubai Afrika Sickle Cell Project has endorsed Mercy who is very happy to be a part of this in loving memory of her elder sister, Joy Aigbe. She is the first ambassador of this Project and I hope more Nigerian Celebrities are worthy enough to lend a voice to great causes like this..It will serve as an inspiration to the younger generations in Africa.
