Incorporate children with albinism into the society, Presidential Advisor urges

Grace Kapatuka, Mana, Salima. Special Presidential Advisor on Persons with Albinism and Disabilities, Overstone Kondowe, has urged people in the country to incorporate children with albinism in the society so that they also feel valued as human beings.

Kondowe made the remarks Tuesday during a beach summer camp his office in collaboration with Benga Parish, APAM and Good Samaritan Homes organized for children with albinism and without albinism.

Kondowe said children with albinism feel secluded most of the times because the community fails to incorporate them into the society a development he said makes them feel excluded and live a life of fear.

APAM Executive Member, Bennet Phunyanya, described the social gathering between children with albinism and those without albinism as a great arrangement saying it will motivate the children with albinism.

During the beach camp, various companies such as Pharmanova, Latitude 13, Water Aid and others donated various items to the children like sunscreen, blankets, bathing towels, toothbrushes, soap, games and many others.
