Faith is 12 years old. She lives in Uganda and has sickle cell disease. Faith was suffering regular strokes which left her partially paralysed and relying on her mother to carry her everywhere. Her family couldn’t afford the essential medication.
Malteser International runs outreach clinics in Uganda and Faith is just one of the hundreds of people whose lives have been transformed by the Order. With the medication she now receives, Faith is having fewer strokes. She can walk without support and can enjoy life with her family.
