World Sickle Cell Day 2020

Under recommendation by a United Nations Resolution in 2008, World Sickle Cell Day has been celebrated globally every year on June 19th to raise awareness of sickle cell disease, also known as sickle cell anaemia.

This year Thalassaemia and Sickle Cell Australia is lighting up Australia red for World Sickle Cell Day.

If you live in the following cities, make sure you head down and take a snap of the light-up. Share online using #LightUpForSickleCell.

Send us your best photos and we will feature them here and on our newsletter!
