When Rachael started her education at Child of Hope she appeared healthy, but vigilance over routine health checks soon revealed she had sickle cell anaemia. The school nurse has continued to monitor and care for her.

Throughout lockdown, Rachael has been receiving regular treatment, which has successfully avoided any health crisis. She is also in the school’s nutrition programme, receiving special meals to boost her immune system.

Rachael is nine years old in the Primary 2 class, loves dancing and acting, and hopes to become a nurse in the future. Currently Rachel is without a sponsor; perhaps you would consider sponsoring her continuing education, or another child’s?  Just £15 per month, please click here for details
