Story

People with albinism lack the protective skin pigment melanin which makes them highly vulnerable to skin cancer. Advantage Africa works with our partner the Source of the Nile Union of Persons with Albinism (SNUPA) to prevent needless deaths from skin cancer by promoting sun avoidance and protection. However, as our skin clinics reach new areas, we often come across people with albinism with advanced skin cancer who require urgent surgery to save their lives. There are currently twelve such people, aged from 16 to 32, in immediate need of urgent treatment and care, without which they face an uncertain future.

Two wonderful couples have now pledged to match all donations up to £6,300 in order to raise £12,600 to meet the needs of all 12 people, as well as to support those requiring interventions to remove pre-cancerous lesions or ongoing palliative care and support.

Your life-saving donation will be doubled and go twice as far! We will update the running total regularly with the matching funds for each donation.

There's no free cancer treatment in Uganda, but we are working with dedicated health and community workers who are going the extra mile to help people with albinism in extreme need. With your support and encouragement we can together help people with albinism to have a future to look forward to.
