It is shocking that there are people who still believe that killing albinos will help solve their problems, improve their businesses or even help them win court cases.

Such notions or thinking must be stopped! Those who still think about that must feel ashamed of themselves.

Albinos are people just like anyone, and they need to be loved and protected all the time.

We must continue to spread the word that people living with albinism are not different from us.

After all, we breathe the same air and we must show them the love they deserve.

People living with albinism face discrimination and segregation.

In some instances they are often neglected by their own families.

People living with albinism do not live normal lives due to constant discrimination. Albinos must be recognised as normal people with equal rights, feelings and needs.

They also deserve to be shown respect, just like the rest of us. They also deserve to be afforded opportunities, just like other people.

We must continue to understand and accept albinos in society.

We have to reduce the stigma and rampant killing of albinos for witchcraft purposes.

Society should embrace men and women living with albinism. People should stop calling them names as it affects their confidence, social interaction or even inclusion. We are all God’s children.
