Every Clinic Counts- Our aim is for the network of clinics to reach every person living with albinism no matter how remote and isolated they may be.
- To do this we will open fifteen more clinics over the next four years.- It costs £4,286 to equip and run one new clinic for a year.
Every clinic really does count in the fight against skin cancer in Tanzania and with your help we will ensure that no person living with albinism dies of skin cancer unnecessarily. Please donate to Every Clinic Counts and be part of this life-saving campaign.
