Updates from Tanzania

Below is some information from the Asante Mariamu Foundation. HPS'ers will remember that thier director came and spoke at our conference. Unfortunately, the news from Tanzania is pretty grim. There's another upsurge in the attacks on people with albinism.

In the last two months, a four year-old child with albinism was taken out of her bed and killed, and four others were mutilated because of their genetic condition.

If you want to read the stories (they are hard reading) you can visit the Foundation's Web page with updates at: http://www.asante-mariamu.org/Asante_Mariamu/Hot_Topics.html
