Persons living with Albinism have spoken about the ill-treatment the society subject them to, with an appeal for an abrupt end.
The Albinos are calling for equal rights in a society which has far too long despised culminating with untold hardships.
They expressed the uncomfortable situation at the First National Stakeholders Forum on the right of persons with albinism in Ghana on Thursday at Koforidua.
It was under the theme, “Combating Customary Banishment of Persons with Albinism in Ghana”.
The Albinos were unhappy about the treatment they go through in the society including abuse of their human rights.
“We are humans and we want to be treated as such. People treat us as if we have no rights to live. Please tolerate us a bit,” they appealed.
