Crescent Kids is the UK registered charity with a simple achievable mission: stop the pain. SCD is one of the most common genetic conditions in the world.


The condition affects their quality of life, education, social life and is life-threatening. The impact on the child and family unit is catastrophic and relentless.


The current situation is unacceptable, and we are setting out to change it People with sickle cell disease (SCD) are afflicted on two fronts — one by having a serious, chronic condition that inflicts pain and other complications — the other by a fragmented system of care.


New ways of managing this disease have improved diagnosis and supportive care over the last few decades, but most patients still have severe complications to overcome. The future of care for patients relies on advanced and highly targeted approaches to research, discovery, and implementation of proven and new treatments. We want to ensure that patients with SCD receive state-of-the-art care.


Our trustees provide strategic guidance and direction, ensuring that goals are in place to drive forward our support of the research and treatment of Sickle Cell & Thalassemia.
