We observe World Sickle Cell Day, marked every year worldwide on 19 June to create awareness on the disorder and how it affects the lives of people who have it and those who love them.
We are a national non-governmental and non-profit organization based in The Gambia. Our Social and Economic Empowerment programme aims to complement the government’s development efforts and contributes to the attainment of related sustainable development goals (SDGs). Our focus is on three major interrelated areas: health, economic and social empowerment, and environmental issues.
We operate clinics under our Health component including BAFROW Medical Centre and the Well Woman Clinics. We provide the highest standards in medical service delivery as well as lifesaving information and knowledge on health matters.
Our Economic Empowerment component strengthens the capacity of girls and women in various life skills for economic sustenance, improved nutrition and health-seeking behaviour.
Health care delivery
Our medical services contribute to the reduction of illnesses and deaths in The Gambia through the provision of integrated health preventive and clinical care, maternal and child health care, and nutritional orientation to all.
Our work therefore responds to both the national health policy goals and the United Nation’s health related Sustainable Development Goals.
