THE ISSUE OF PEOPLE WITH ALBINISM IN TANZANIA.

If you are born with albinism in Africa you are likely to be ostracised and violently abused by your community. Since 2006  dangerous witchcraft beliefs have led to 75 people with albinism being brutally killed in Tanzania for their body parts, used in witchcraftrituals throught to bestow good fortune and  wealth.Those who have surved have been left mutilated.

Vulnerable to attack,women and  children are at particular risk,Since the killings began,hundreds of  children with albinism have  been moved by  the government to live in  special protectorate  centres accross the country.
