Albinos in Tanzania face extreme danger

“I’m on the run because if I’m walking along, someone might cut off my legs. I’m really scared.” – Yusuf, a young albino man in Tanzania

Watch this video to learn about the struggle of albinos in Tanzania. Then, learn more here.

I’ve looked for things to do to help – and am drawing a blank. For example, the video informs us that it’s hard to come up with even basic needs like sunscreen. If you have an idea for getting these kinds of items there – or should you find links to organizations doing political and social action work, post the resource here as a comment. Thanks!
