Rescue ‘Fortress’ In Tanzania Protects Albinos From Human Hunters
The rescue centres in Tanzania protect albino people from the vicious hunters who sell their body parts to witch doctors.

The women who flee to the centre with their albino children also act as guardians for the other albino children who have been abandoned at the centre in Kabanga Refuge Centre, Tanzania, 2012. (Photo by Ana Palacios/Barcroft Images) Continue reading »
