Albinism Awareness Day 2019 – “Still Standing Strong”

People with albinism face multiple forms of discrimination worldwide. Albinism is still profoundly misunderstood, socially and medically. The physical appearance of persons with albinism is often the object of erroneous beliefs and myths influenced by superstition, which foster their marginalization and social exclusion. This leads to various forms of stigma and discrimination.

In some communities, erroneous beliefs and myths, heavily influenced by superstition, put the security and lives of persons with albinism at constant risk. These beliefs and myths are centuries old and are present in cultural attitudes and practices around the world. – UN International Albinism Awareness Day.

And today, I join The Albino Foundation TAF whose VISION is – “The Albino Foundation envisions a society with equal opportunity for Persons with Albinism” to celebrate the International Albinism Awareness Day.
