Today, 1 in every 1,400 Tanzanians is born Albino. Some people believe having an Albino baby is a curse while other believe they are a ghost tribe and can not die. The Albino African people have been attacked, killed, dismembered, had their graves dug up and desecrated all for the belief the witch doctors have passed on to the people, their body parts carry magic powers.
On the black market a complete “set” ears, tongue, nose, genitals, all four limbs can sell for $75,000. Children are the most affected by this horrific crime and although Tanzania has made some progress but it has been slow and many families are still displaced and living in fear.
We must not although the spotlight to leave the Albino African people, Tanzania must know the International world is watching and demanding they protect the Albino African children.
