ABOUT THE FOUNDATION:
Progeny Foundation Nig is a Non Governmental Organization geared towards creating awareness and educating Nigerians about Sickle Cell Disease. The foundation was established by Bukola Sogbuyi who also lives with the disease and has experienced the complications and difficulties that arise due to lack of awareness and shortage of funded facilities that cater to Nigerians living with this disease. Progeny Foundation is geared towards educating the less privileged and those living below the poverty line about the disease and inexpendive measures to prevent crisis, improve health conditions and prolong the life span of Nigerians living with Sickle Cell Disease.
The foundation conducts fund raising events to be donated to the Sickle Cell Foundation and its research center. The Sickle Cell Foundation renders financial, moral and medical assistance to less privileged Nigerians living with the disease.
