Physical attacks on people with albinism, especially women and children, are still a big problem in many African countries. They are exposed to discrimination and their right to education is limited by the lack of conditions for teaching children with visual impairments. As a result, the lives of those affected by a lack of pigment are a constant stream of distress and danger in many African countries. The worst expression of discrimination is dehumanisation: the belief that people affected by this condition are ghosts or possess magical powers.
Kasisi is a home that also protects such children. It provides them not only with safety, but also with the best medical care, responds to their special needs and enables them to spread their wings. A perfect example is Anna Maria. She has been with us for five years. The environment created by the sisters has made her a bundle of energy, she never stops smiling and she is given exactly the same chances as everyone else in the house.
Thank you for building this HOME with us! Today is International Albinism Awareness Day.
Santa Claus never had it easy in Kasisi 😉 Over 230 children live here. Sister Mariola has already rushed to his aid and is quietly preparing presents!
Many of us still leave a free seat at the Christmas Eve table. Let one of our children sit at it this year (at a distance, but very much for real) and invite them to the table today!
