Albinos want their share of disability funds

11 March 2014, 11:36 Ken Wekesa

Kilifi - More than 800 albinos in Malindi want the Kilifi county government and the national government to provide the KES 200 million allocated to people with disabilities which they say has not been disbursed to them.

Speaking to the press, Albinism Foundation East Africa CEO, Wambui Kairi said that the albinos have not benefited from the fund even after it was allocated to them.

Kairi said that a number of albinos have died from skin cancer because they could not afford the sunscreen lotion.

“Majority of people living with albinism are poor and cannot afford the sunscreen lotion which is very expensive,” said Kairi.

However, Kairi has challenged the national government to ensure that the funds allocated to albinos are redirected to the office of people with disabilities to help in the purchase of the sunscreen lotion and other medical supplies required by people living with albinism.

Representative of people living with albinism in Kilifi County, James Mwie said they live in fear as they have received death threats from unknown people.

“It’s our prayer that the national government may intervene and ensure that our rights are respected and protected,” said Mwie.
