A Non-Governmental Organization (NGO), Medicaid Cancer Foundation (MCF) based in Kebbi State has called on Nigerians to show love, care and support for the people living with Albinism, as the world marks the 2021  Albinism Awareness day.

The Chief Executive Officer of the Foundation, Dr Zainab Shinkafi Bagudu while distributing relief material to people living with Albinism in the State on Sunday urged members of the society to change their discriminatory attitude towards people living with Albinism and other vulnerable groups amongst them.

Dr Bagudu charges Nigerians to note that the Albinos due to their lack of melanin, the skin pigment are vulnerable to skin cancers and eye defects and as such, they need financial supports to purchase sunscreen eyeglasses among other necessary needs.

The Medicaid Foundation Chief Executive who is also a strong advocate of social inclusion of vulnerable groups and a strong campaigner against all forms of discrimination against Albinos and other vulnerable in the society wants society to change its attitude against them.

“As the world marks the Awareness day for the people living with Albinism, I urged you to show them love, care and support to ward off skin cancer and other cancerous diseases.” She said.
