UNEMPLOYED IN YOUR 30S

Image
Not too long ago I found myself in this very position and needless to say I felt lost, confused and extremely frustrated. It was as though yet again, life had taken me 2 steps backwards and things were not looking positive in terms of securing another job anytime soon either because like so many, I applied to several places often even applying to jobs that were going to pay less than what I knew I was worth. I just needed to feel busy and productive, to wake up every day with a purpose, have somewhere to go and with something to do.

SICKLE CELL DISEASE IN NIGERIA

Nigeria has probably the highest rate of Sickle Cell Disease in the world and researches have shown that at least 150,000 babies are born with the disease every year;of that 150,000, another 100,000 infants die annually from the disease.. As a result of these statistics, more and more youth are being urged to know the genotype of their intended spouses before marriage. One of four Nigerians is born with the Sickle Cell Trait (SCT), hence the need for sensitization on the disease in regards to its consequences and care before marriage and having children.
