Project Nigeria

Project Nigeria

About 200,000 babies are born with sickle cell in Nigeria each year and more than half will not make it to their 5th birthday. That is a devastating fact so please reflect on it. And then help us do something about it.

Embrace Kids, Tackle Sickle Cell & The McCourty Twins are joining forces for our first service project abroad. The goal of Project Nigeria is to bring much needed support to some of the most disadvantaged children in the world. The immediate goal is to provide 12 months of desperately needed vitamins to 2,000 children with sickle cell disease in Nigeria. Then we will provide other necessities such as diapers and formula, basic laptops for child education and other critical supplies.

10 service project ambassadors will visit the pediatric sickle cell clinic in Abuja, Nigeria in May 2022 so as to experience their challenges firsthand. The 10-person team is starting a personal fundraising campaign and then the McCourty Twins are going to match the first $25,000 of our fundraising. So your donation goes twice as far!
