Albino Project

Albino Project

Short description of our project:

Albinism: A group of genetic disorders in which there is partial or total lack of the pigment melanin in the eyes, skin, and hair.People with Albinism are most affected by sun light which cause them skin cancer, statistically 85% of Albino dies before the age of 40.

We are going to help people with Albinism with medical supply to prevent themselves from skin cancer. We will supply to them sunscreen creams, hats, sunshades and long sleeve clothes to prevent themselves from direct sun light and eye lenses to students for reading from far and magnifiers for reading books.

We will provide cryosurgery equipment to some clinics to treat small skin tumors before growing into dangerous cancer.

Who is our target audience?
