Albinos living in constant fear
“Persons with albinism and parents of children with albinism constantly live in fear of attack,” she said.
“Many do not sleep peacefully and have deliberately restricted their movement to the necessary minimum.” Ero recently visited Malawi, which has seen an increasing number of attacks.
Since the end of 2014, there have been 65 recorded cases of attacks, the U.N. said. Ero urged the government to step in to protect albinos and go after their killers more aggressively.
“It is clear that an urgent and coordinated response from the government, civil society and development partners working in strong partnership with each other is required,” she said.
