Featured Story

Josephine and Lupus

Josephine has been living with Lupus since she was five years of age. Her diagnosis was confirmed when she was nine. Lupus is a disease that has no cure. It is an autoimmune disease that occurs when the body’s own immune system attacks various healthy parts of the body.

Every project endeavours to meet the challenge to improve the health of people living with allergy and immune diseases.
