Nigerian Lady Bukola Bolarinwa was given awards by Queen Of England

Bukola Bolarinwa met and got the Queens Young Leaders Award from the Queen of England yesterday. Bukola was conceived with Sickle Cell Disease. 

In the wake of seeing the unending deficiency of blood confronted by individuals living with Sickle Cell who require customary transfusions, she joined the Sickle Cell Aid Foundation (SCAF) in 2010 to help bring issues to light about the significance of giving blood.
She began a monthly campaign drive in partnership with the National Blood Transfusion Service to try to ensure a regular supply of donated blood, and to help combat cultural fears about giving blood.



In 2015, Bukola set up Haima Health Initiative (http://haimahealth.org.ng/ ) an online blood donation register which asks young people to register to donate blood in emergency situations. During its first year, the register has gained more than 1,000 prospective donors and, through the use of social media and text messaging, linked over 500 donors with patients in urgent need of blood. Bukola is currently working to recruit 5,000 people as registered blood donors by December 2017.









A legal practitioner in Nigeria, Bukola is a graduate of law from the University of Leicester, England with a Masters in International Economic Law from the Univesity of Warwick.


Bukola is a 2016 Future Awards Winner for Advocacy and Activism
