Alaafia is a safe space that provides empowerment, resources and support to African immigrant and Sickle Cell families or other individuals seeking services.
We formed Strength in Sickle Cell in honor of Ti’binta Fatamata Kamara (a Sickle Cell Warrior); she went to the great beyond on January 28th, 2014.
