International Albinism Awareness Day was celebrated on Thursday 13th June 2019.
Our volunteer PR officer Andrew Bennett has been working with some of our supporters living with Albinism to produce some positive stories that we hope to get into the media around 13th June, and we’ll post details and links on this site as soon as anything is confirmed.
Our vice chair Mark Sanderson and two of our supporters, Precious Toe Ngwu and Christian Tchidjo, are all speaking at an International Symposium in London on 12/13th June which is raising awareness of Albinism in Africa. AF Chair Roselle Potts also be attending with information about the Fellowship to promote our organisation
The symposium is open to all to attend although there is a charge; for more information please go to www.jtfe.org.
One of our supporters, Bhavit Shah, has decided to raise awareness by doing a sponsored walk for the Albinism Fellowship on 13th June from his place of work in Canary Wharf, London to his home in Harrow (some 18 miles!) He is going to be accompanied by his colleague Vikas Dagar and their employers are considering matching whatever they raise.
Please support Bhavit by going to his JustGiving page. Feel free to share this link with friends and family.
