Support for albinism

14 July 2019 | Society

While commemorating International Albinism Awareness Day, FNB Namibia donated 250 sun protection hats valued at N$21 750 to Albino Care Support in Namibia of Albinism Sufferers Requiring Assistance (SINASRA).

“Namibia has the highest per capita number of persons with albinism in the SADC Region,” said Dr Peter Stoermer of SINASRA at the handover that took place at the School for Visually Impaired. “Cultural marginalisation, stigmatisation, and the cruel treatment of those living with albinism was the reason for establishing SINASRA.”

According to Leslie Puriza of FNB, the bank is committed to the promotion of social equality and equity to bring positive change in the lives of all Namibians without exception.

“We do this specifically through our FirstRand Foundation Trust. Our sponsorship is a demonstration of our commitment to ensuring that the rights of everyone are recognised and protected.”
