    Shocking Story About Albinism in Tanzania

    Hello, my name is Peter Ash - I have albinism and live in Vancouver Canada.  I was at the conference in Vegas promoting some work I am leading with Rick from Positive Exposure.  I represent a canadian foundation - and am leading a team to address the recent spate of killings of persons with albinism in Tanzania.  Please go to this website:

     you will be able to view a variety of media reports on the killings and other issues impacting persons with albinism in Tanzania.  On the website you can also subscribe to be added to our email newsletter list.  I am traveling there next month and will be meeting with several high ranking governemnt leaders in relation to this issue.  Official reports indicate 28 killings of persosn with albinism at the hands of witchdoctors.  Body parts are used and sold.  People in the albinism community feel the brutal murders number closer to 60.
