  • Lack of enough basic needs ranging from food, shelter, clothing, medical care and education, since this faces social exclusion and they are unable to engage actively in community activities. While populations engage in different income generating activities supplement what they receive from different NGOs but enough, the albinos have to survive on that service alone.
  • Stigma and discrimination, albinos in the camps are given negative nick names and judged which presents a greatest barrier to a complete and satisfying life. They face a challenge of making lasting friends and ended being bullied and abused.
