#WorldAlbinismDay: See What This Doctor Is Doing To Help Improve The Vision Of Persons With albinism

Yesterday was World Albinism Day. A day set aside to celebrate and appreciate the challenges confronted by persons living with Albinism.

One challenged folks with this condition face is poor vision. This is due to the fact that they lack Malanim in the eye.

She revealed to BBC Africa that Albinism should not be a condition that should affect the lives of the victims, since there are solutions to some of these problems.

Watch her interview.
