What We are About
CrimsonBow is a faith based non-governmental organization that seeks to reach out to people whose lives have been affected by the Sickle Cell condition, either directly as sufferers, or indirectly as parents, children, siblings, friends or colleagues of sufferers. By way of research, story-telling and information sharing CrimsonBow intends to equip Sickle Cell warriors with what it takes to fight and continuously push back the boundaries and limits put upon their lives by the Sickle Cell condition.
