Fr John Kolkman Foundation
has been leading the initiative to develop and provide a structured program for managing sickle cell disease in Cameroon. Through a variety of programs, direct services and events the foundation has served hundreds of families. We take a holistic approach to managing sickle cell disease with emphasis on preventing a crisis before it ever occurs.
While there is no cure for sickle cell disease, every child or family affected can be cared for, and can live a normal and productive life. With the support of persons like you we can meet our objectives, reach our goals and restore wholeness to the sickle cell child and family.
The welfare of the affected child and family, irrespective of location, ethnicity or creed, is our primary focus. Basic healthcare services and facilities in general are not always available, and when they do, are not accessible especially to those in the remote areas. Our approach is to bring the needed sickle cell services to the doorsteps of the affected families.
Eternal and Merciful Father, hear our prayers for your children with sickle cell anemia. Unite their pains and sufferings with that of your Son on Calvary. Grant them the virtue of hope, that they may never lose their faith in thy loving purpose.
Almighty Father, through the most Precious Blood of your Son, grant the Fr John Kolkman Foundation, the resources, and the wisdom to effectively use them, in assisting those with sickle cell anemia.
Holy Spirit, our Advocate, inspire in sponsors, the firm hope that, with your protection, the work begun and supported by their generosity, will come to a fruitful completion. Look with favor on their offerings; fulfill their plans.
