“The 2030 Sustainable Development Agenda pledges to leave no one behind. That includes people with albinism. The cycle of attacks, discrimination and poverty must be broken”. BAN KI-MOON (UN Secretary-General). After a month of meeting Angela & Angelina (the twin Albino sisters) who were shunned, maligned, subjugated, stigmatised & discriminated we’re sad but happy to announce that the LORD AGBAVOR FOUNDATION (LAF-GHANA) has assisted to renew their expired health insurance cards to enable them access healthcare, a right they were unable to assert upon the expiration of their health insurance cards. As a further demonstration of our commitment to the plight of persons with all forms of disabilities including albinism as one of our focus areas, LAF-GHANA will on Saturday 3rd September 2016 visit them in their village to ascertain how life has been for them over the years. The occasion will also be used to interact with family, friends & the village folks on how they perceive these people & also educate them on the need to accept them as normal human beings. This is the first step towards our long-term project dubbed ‘THE ALBINO, MY FRIEND’, aimed at ending all forms of discriminations against such persons and properly integrate them into society. The occasion will also witness the donations of provisions, toiletries, confectionery, clothes & money to make life comfortable for them on their return to school. No amount is small, every contribution counts. Be a part of this project and the LORD will bless you. LAF-GHANA. Touching Lives! Changing Destinies!!
