BrightStar Foundation is a non profit making organization, that focuses on educating people on the Sickle Cell Disease and helping those with the disease become healthier along side fighting to erase the Sickle Cell Stigma of dieing before 21.
This organization is a small one gradually growing and needs the help of volunteers and sponsors to do so. The Main goal is to spread the word all over the word and give both financial and emotional support to the patient with Sickle Cell Disease.
Volunteering for me was very fulfilling because after every day of work, I felt happy that I was helping at least I patient in the world.
When assisting in cordinating seminals, after putting in th work and time, on the day of the annual seminals I always felt that the work was worth it because of all the smiles on the faces of the patients as they saw that they were not alone, were cancelled on the stigma,listened to patients who had passed the "death age"(21years), got some little medicines they need to drink daily(folic acid)and did fun activities with others like them.
