ALBINISM FACTS

Albinism is a congenital (existing at or before birth) disorder caused by reduced or the complete absence of melanin: the pigment responsible for giving color to our skin, eyes, and hair. Albinism is sometimes known as hypopigmentation. People with albinism can live long, healthy lives just as anyone else. The biggest danger comes from skin cancer which develops more easily from unprotected sun exposure.

OUR SPONSORS

BAF believes in developing network and relationships locally and internationally within the business community, social development organizations, private and public sectors. We would like to thank the following organizations in helping us create a better tomorrow for people with Albinism in Tanzania.
