Help Treat Chronic Leg Ulcers in 50 Nigerians
Leg ulcers, the most debilitating and stigmatizing complication of sickle cell disease can remain unhealed for years. Very painful, they render patients incapacitated, confined indoors and preclude them from leading normal, productive lives. Sickle Cell Foundation Nigeria has identified a wound dressing solution more effective for healing these ulcers than commonly used solutions. This project will be providing FREE wound dressings for 50 indigent patients in Nigeria over a 6 month period.
