Albinism is a genetic condition affecting 10 times more people in Africa than in the UK.

Lacking melanin pigment in their skin, people with albinism in East Africa are highly vulnerable to the sun and many die in childhood from skin cancer.

Without protection, almost all will die before reaching 40 years of age.

To mark 2020 World Cancer Day, all donations to this appeal in February 2020 will support people with albinism to keep safe from skin cancer by providing high SPF sunscreen and lip balm, wide brimmed hats, long-sleeved clothing, regular skin checks and surgery. 

We urgently need your help to ensure that many more people with albinism can look forward to full lives.

Will you make a donation towards this life-saving work today?

Thank you for your generous support.
