They blazed the trail


A bit of history
Children Sickle Cell Foundation (CSCF) was founded in 2001 by a group tired of always running into walls when it came to Sickle Cell Disease care.

About Us


We are an independent not-for-profit, community based organization, dedicated to improving the quality of life of persons with Sickle Cell Disease. CSCF was founded in 2001 with the guidance of our Patron Dr. K.C. Wafula and a group of parents who had children with Sickle Cell. They founded CSCF out of frustrations that faced both adult and children sickle cell disease patients as well care givers. The motto of the organization, "Turning Sickles into Smiles" aims to cope with the overwhelming obstacles and emotional challenges that are a part of living with a serious, chronic disease that is under-funded, undervalued and the target of much ignorance, prejudice and discouraging empty complaints and rife stigma.

Our branches


We have country-wide presence in several heavily affected counties

CSCF's national network is made possible by a large army of very dedicated volunteers who provide a vital link to our members countrywide.
These are caregivers and warriors alike who've taken up the crucial duty of ensuring that members within their areas receive timely and appropriate care and information.
