Towards a new stage in Drep.Afrique's partnership to fight sickle cell disease in Senegal

For nearly five years, an important cooperation project has been in place between the NGO Drep.Afrique and Senegal. In particular, successful actions have been undertaken to train doctors and health care staff within the framework of the Franco-Senegalese Campus. Also, with the civil society through a partnership with the Senegalese Association for the fight against sickle cell disease (A.S.D). These various Drep.Afrique initiatives have received support from the AFD, private donations and numerous volunteers.
Following his first meeting with President Macky Sall in June 2019, Robert Hue, President and Founder of Drep.Afrique, has requested a new audience with the President of the Republic of Senegal to give a new impetus to the fight against sickle cell disease on the African continent.

Delivery of three oxygen concentrators to the Centre de recherche et de lutte contre la drépanocytose de Bamako (CLRD)

Faced with the Coronavirus pandemic, our NGO Drep.Afrique launched last June a specific action to collect donations to provide several hospitals in sub-Saharan Africa with oxygen concentrators for sickle cell patients.

After Benin, we are pleased to announce that we have just sent three medical oxygen concentrators to Bamako in Mali. These donations were made to the Centre for Research and Control of Sickle Cell Disease in Bamako. They were handed over by Aminata DEMBELE, a volunteer in our association, in the presence of Pr Guindo (deputy director of the centre) and the centre's medical team. We would like to thank Pr Baby (director of the centre) and Pr Guindo as well as all the nursing staff of the centre for their warm welcome.

We also thank the generous donors and the company
VitalAire for their solidarity contribution
