It is not a secret an more; Malawi has over the past few years experienced a very bad situation whereby people with albinism are killed. It is rumored that those in such malpractices are doing so after visiting witchcraft for them to get rich. It is not true that fellow persons such as people with albinism can make one to get rich. But what has been the consequences is such inhuman acts? It has to be understood that people with albinism have poor eyesight and hence most of them are found learning in schools that accommodate people with poor sight.
Things are very bad although the government has put up mechanisms to remedy the situation. Persons with albinism are living in fear and thereby not concentrating in class.
Drug Fight Malawi is looking for funds to put up a very comprehensive campaign to sensitize the public on the ills of this malpractices.
