By Olive Namutebi, The Executive Director, Albinim Umbrella

Olive described Albinism as a genetic condition that was manifested at birth where a person completely
lacked or partially lacked melanin with evidence of pale or ash grey eyes, no colour in hair and the skin.
The Albinism Umbrella was a voice for the albinism community in Uganda. It was estimated that over
1:20,000 persons in the world lived with some form of albinism. One person in every 17,000 in Europe and
America lived with albinism while one in every 5,000 for the sub Saharan Africa. Approximately 20,000
persons in Uganda were living with albinism in Uganda. Persons living with albinism (PWAs) faced
challenges like stigma, discrimination, low levels of education, poverty, ignorance about their health
