Zamda an albino girl and her mother’s hands, Tanzania

This little albino girl is called Zamda, she lives in the village of Mikindani, in south tanzania. Before going there i read some very sad and cruel stories about albinos people in Tanzania. Many are killed, as witchdoctors use and sell some hair, nails, and even parts of their bodies to fight djinns (devils)… So when i met Zamda i was happy to see that she was well treated, even if she has lot of skin problems as you can see on her face.
