SICKLE CELL ANAEMIA. Sickle Cell Anaemia is an inherited condition, meaning that from birth, growing children require explanations to help understand their illness as they develop. In response to this, we created a series of short animations aimed at 3-10 year olds. In each episode, two characters (Cellina + Marcell) captivate children with their own journeys in confronting different scenarios of Sickle Cell. Without the use of dialogue, the cartoons work like silent films, resolving language barriers, with gestures and facial expressions narrating the story.
