We are sad to inform you that Comfort Ndive has passed away on 27 October 2016 following a short illness. Comfort worked with the Society for over a decade on many of our projects, starting with the Hackney Sickle Link project, progressing to Lambeth Sickle Link, the Regional Care Adviser project and the Brent Sickle Cell Advice and Support Service. She was well-known in the sickle cell community in London, providing advice, information and support on behalf of the Society throughout the city. Comfort took an active role in organising our annual Children’s Holiday, which provides respite and education to children with sickle cell. Comfort Ndive was a dedicated and passionate advocate for the sickle cell community, and she will be truly missed. May her soul rest in peace.
