We are a grassroots campaign dedicated to increasing awareness about the immediate and long-term mortal threats to people living with albinism in East Africa. We work with many others to highlight a deadly black market as witch doctors promote the belief that body parts from people with albinism can bring wealth and luck. Many people with albinism are also dying prematurely and painfully from skin cancer.
