People born with albinism in Africa are facing alot of challenges in their day to day lifes. They are being hunted down in most parts of the continent. Lots of people born with albinism are being killed everyday for various reasons ranging from ritual beliefs to get rich quick schemes. They are being discriminated, called names, denied employment opportunities. 

Because albinism is a condition that is caused by lack of a skin color pigment called Melanine, the people born with Albinism also face serious challenges with harsh weather conditions. For instance too much exposure to the sun lead to skin diseases and in some instances, cancer. They need to use sun screens to protect themselves from the sun. Some have sight problems. 

You can help in making life better for people born with albinism. 

Join the #Pledge4Albinism Initiative which is being championed by the Alive Albinism Initiative, a Zimbabwe based organisation.

You can make any pledge by signing this petition and sending a picture/video or audio of what you pledge towards people with albinism to this email: tapiwagwen@gmail.com
