Living with Albinism on Ukerewe.
We would like to introduce you to Mr. Ramadhani, who is the Chairman of the Ukerewe Albino Society.
When John, Chris and Barry were on the island last month, they met Mr. Ramadhani, who is a car mechanic by trade, but cannot work because he has no tools - and no money to buy any. Mr. Ramadhani said to our representatives "We are trying to stand on our own feet. We want to be treated as normal humans and bring a sense of belonging, harmony, freedom and security to the Albino comminity, who are finding life so difficult with their complex medical problems, poor health care and prejudice from some of the local community".
