Save the Albino child
WE SHOULD NEVER DISCRIMINATE CHILDREN BECAUSE OF THEIR SKIN CONDITIONS
Albinos still face discrimination and stigmatization in most parts of Africa. In Tanzania, the killing and selling of Albino body parts to witchdoctors who use their body parts for rituals is rampant. Moreover, fishermen believe that their hair attracts large harvest of fish and business people believe that when their body parts are put into business premises, they attract clients. In this way, trading Albino’s body parts is a lucrative business in Kenya and Tanzania that can make lazy people rich within a short time. The article in BBC brings the reality of African albinos, and mostly children, who are hunted and sold at about US $ 75, 000 and that about 80 people with albinism have been killed since the year 2000. Apart from the killings, they also have challenges with the African hot sun and most of them cannot afford the sunburn creams. In Kenya, Albinos are hunted and sold to Tanzania. This prompted the government to move them away from the Tanzania border.
Due to the problems faced by Albino children in the rural, we started a program that rescues them and get them better schools away from the villages where they are at risk of kidnapping. Currently, our Albinos are admitted to special schools where they are educated and given proper care
