With whitish hair and skin, as well as pale, light-sensitive eyes, people with albinism usually suffer more from social stigma than from their actual physical disabilities. And while this condition is found in all races around the globe, nowhere is it more dangerous to be an albino than in Tanzania. Here, it's deadly.

In the last year alone, more than 50 albinos have been murdered, some as young as six months old. Many more have been attacked with machetes, their limbs cut off while alive. Their body parts are used by witchdoctors in potions and remedies as they are believed to bring wealth and success in business.
