For Tanzanians with albinism – a lack of pigmentation in the skin, hair and eyes – skin cancer is an ever-present danger, with youth developing precancerous lesions by the time they are 15. MCC partners with the Mennonite Church of Tanzania and Albino Peacemakers Group to ensure people such as Dolvin Olomi and Richard Limo have access to skin screenings and treatment for lesions.
