In most developing and emerging countries, awareness of haemophilia and allied bleeding disorders is very low. Through awareness creating activities we join hands with the community worldwide to change this.
Our activities include:
- Stretch Out for Haemophilia – using thera-bands to aid exercise, this campaign raises awareness of the benefits of appropriate exercise for people with haemophilia
- Desafio Orinoco 2010 - NNHF sponsored a team of swimmers with haemophilia to complete a 3.1 km swim. Participants reported better joint articulation and increased self-esteem
- Desafio del Caribe 2011/2012 – after the success of Desafio Orinoco, NNHF is now helping to bring together two teams of swimmers from Venezuela and Mexico to complete a 10 km swim. The results of ongoing medical assessment will be published after the project.
If you want to support our awareness activities, get in touch with us today. Or spread the word in your community and organise a Stretch Out activity or swimming event.
