(Tanzania) Ministry for People with Albinism

The number of people with Albinism is very high in Tanzania--far more than in many other Sub-Saharan African country. People with Albinism are horribly persecuted in Tanzania. Their skin is thought to have magical properties, so they are killed, dismembered and their body parts used in magic potions. Or, they are killed because people think them cursed and bearers of bad luck. Either way, they’re in an incredibly precarious situation.

Under the direction of Father Lam Hua, M.M., Maryknoll will continue to provide natural medicines and provide health education and screening in the community and schools. With your generous support, we will build our own facility to continue to carry out this important work. Your gift is a blessing to those in need.
