Summary

In late December 2013, Humanity Healing International identified 14 albino children on the run from traffickers who sell them to witch doctors who sacrifice and use their body parts in "magic rituals". Working through our partner, SCOSP Uganda, 10 of the children were rescued. Your support will help relocate these children to a long-term safe location, enroll them in school and not only give them Hope for a better future, but give them Hope a life - one free from fear.

Challenge

Sacrifice of Albino Children is Still a Reality in Africa In late December 2013, Humanity Healing International identified 14 albino children on the run from traffickers who sell them to witch doctors who sacrifice and use their body parts in "magic rituals". 10 of the children were rescued. Your support will help relocate these children to a long-term safe location, enroll them in school and not only give them Hope for a better future, but give them Hope a life - one free from fear.

Solution

This project covers the costs of transporting the rescued children to a long-term secure area and enrolling them in school where they can concentrate on learning instead of living in fear.

Long-Term Impact

It is hard to imagine that child sacrifice still happens. It is even harder to imagine that child sacrifice is happening because of the color of a child's skin. Your donation will have the immediate impact of taking the weight of constant fear off the hearts of these children. Your long-term impact will be to help dispel the the myths associated with albinism as more educated albino adults enter society.
