It was an empathy sight at St Mary's Anglican Church Ukpo when Association of People Living with Sickle Cell Disorder visited the church for her flag off event of World sickle cell Day.
The thanksgiving which has become a necessary of evangelism for the association, created an opportunity for them to address the parishioners who aptly listened to the Association's coordinator, Aisha Edwards as she addressed the congregation on the importance of knowing their Genotype especially before marriage so as to avert the chances of procreating sickle Cell children.
She thanked the church for their hospitality, kindness and generosity, which they accord the Association each time they visit, according to her the association has received enormous hospitality from the church especially in aiding her sensitisation campaigns.
