On 13 June, the world celebrates International Albinism Awareness Day (IAAD). For years, the Centre for Human Rights has worked to promote the rights of persons with albinism through various initiatives.
This theme was chosen to:
• Highlight the achievements of people with albinism from around the world
• Show that people with albinism can defy all odds
• Celebrate how people with albinism worldwide meet and exceed expectations in all domains of life
• Encourage everyone during this time of a global pandemic to join the global effort to #BuildBackBetter
The Centre for Human Rights, University of Pretoria, joins the rest of the world in commemorating International Albinism Awareness Day!
