On September the 18th, Zahra Buhari, daughter of President Muhammadu Buhari, signed on to be the brand ambassador of the Sickle Cell Aid Foundation (SCAF). 

Scaf Nigeria, is a non governmental organisation that deals with issues bothering on Sickle Cell.

Zahra, during the unveiling, spoke on how she lost a sister to sickle cell three years ago.

Zahra said:

“I was impressed with the amount of work SCAF has been doing with so little resources. I also lost a sister three years back due to sickle cell anaemia, so I know what it feels like losing a loved one. Becoming an Ambassador of SCAF is a way to show my support to those suffering from sickle cell anaemia.”
