Authorities at Dowa District Council have vowed to support people with albinism in accessing different social amenities.

Dowa District Council Chairperson, Mayamiko Kambewa said, people with albinism should have easy access to Loans, lotions and Affordable farm inputs.

He also said plans are at an advanced stage to provide APAM executive committee in Dowa with a motor cycle.

“The motor cycle will help APAM committee members ease mobility challenges as they undertake day to day activities” Kambewa said.

MHRRC’s programs Officer Charles Gawani said, the organisation has lined up a number of programs aimed at addressing a myriad of challenges people with Albinism are facing.

“We will introduce programs that will help uplift lives of people with albinism in Dowa”. He said.

He further urged government to construct houses for people with albinism in Dowa in order to enhance their security observing that no single house has been constructed yet in the district.

The District council’s pledge was made Saturday at Mponela in Dowa during an interface between council officials and APAM organised by Malawi Human Rights Resource Centre, MHRRC with funding from Christian Blind Mission, CBM.
