"Imagine a small child away from his normal life for up to eight months; something that will feel like a lifetime for a child of this age. With no school, no sports and no other activities. But this haemophilia school will change all of this. It will bring ‘normal’ life back to these children and tremendously improve their chances and quality of life," Dr Aziza Makhmudova, project partner.
