Stop the ritual killings of people with Albinism

 one in every 75 people — are carriers for albinism. And one in 17,000 people have Albinism. Albinism is a genetic condition affecting the hair, eyes, & skin. Around the world there are many stigmas about people with Albinism. Especially in rural areas like Tanzania. In Tanzania people with Albinism a killed by witch doctors to make potions because they believe they bring good luck & fortune. 

When in reality people with Albinism are like any other human being. Albinism comes in any race no discrimination.The only diffrence between a person with Albinism & a person with Melanin is their skin color.

The government in Tanzania refuses to do anything to stop these killings. They claim they have no funds.
