Sickle Cell Foundation Commends MultiChoice For Creating Awareness About Sickle Cell Disorder

Prof. Olu Akinyanju, The Founder Sickle Cell Foundation Nigeria, has commended MultiChoice, a leading pay-television provider in Nigeria for using its broadcast platform and resources to create awareness about the sickle cell disorder.

Speaking at the closing/certificate award ceremony of the 18th Genetic Counselling Training course on Sickle Cell Disorder at the National Sickle Cell Centre in Lagos, Akinyanju said MultiChoice’s determination to enrich lives had also impacted positively on the fight against sickle cell disorder for over a decade.

Akinyanju, while appealing to participants to use the knowledge they received from the course to support and manage sickle cell disorder professionally, also appealed to corporate bodies to emulate the kind gesture of MultiChoice in supporting the fight against the disorder.

Chief Executive Officer, MultiChoice Nigeria, John Ugbe, who was represented by Caroline Oghuma, Executive Head, Corporate Affairs, MultiChoice Nigeria, said the company was an organisation that promoted values and supported training courses as well as other contributions to the fight against SCD as part of its propagation of strong family values.
