Shajan Bava lives in Kochi, a city in the southern part of India. Diagnosed with hemophilia at age one, Shajan never let his condition impede his love of art. As a boy, Shajan would draw in the sand, but he quickly moved on to illustrating on a wide range of materials—from paper to pottery. His work has allowed him to build a reputation in his home city as a talented artist. Shajan has also become something of a role model in Kochi, as the people of the local bleeding disorders community look up to him as an example of how determination can help overcome the challenges of hemophilia. Shajan Bava has benefitted from treatment donated through the WFH Humanitarian Aid Program, further demonstrating that providing treatment to those most in need will help their quality of life. We are very proud to be able to showcase his art here on Hemophilia World Online.
