Tanzania: Living in Fear: Daylight Provides no Protection for Albinos
Persons with albinism suffer from the harsh sunlight in Tanzania and other African countries. Lack of education force many Tanzanian persons with albinism to work outside of buildings - on farms for example. Lack of education on the need to use sun screen and/or sun protective clothing further complicates the danger posed by the sun on this group of persons.
