Missioner On This Project

Fr. John W. Waldrep, M.M.

MISSION PROJECT FULLY FUNDED

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.

Your gift will help protect these people while providing food, medical care, assistance with rent, education, and necessities such as sunblock, umbrellas, sunglasses, and hats.

"Open your mouth in behalf of the mute, and for the rights of the destitute; Open your mouth, judge justly, defend the needy and the poor! - Proverb 31:8-9"
