The Albino Care Support of Albinism Sufferers Requiring Assistance (SINASRA) in Namibia on Friday received sunscreens formulated for sensitive skins valued at N$ 3.1 million from Support Ulm e.V., a non-profit organization based in Ulm, Germany.

The donation was handed over by Alina Nelenge, a representative of Ohorongo Cement, to Birte Veldsman, a Board Member of SINASRA. Nelenge said the donation was given specifically to help and meet SINASRA halfway in providing care for the delicate skins of people living with albinism in Namibia.

Support Ulm e.V. was established by a group of medical doctors who made it their aim to support medical projects throughout the world. They support various projects by means of financial and humanitarian means as well as through donations.

“There was no better day to have the handover than on 10 March which is recognized as the International Day of Awesomeness as these creams will be used by some of the most awesome people in this world”, said Nelenge at the handover ceremony.

According to Support Ulm e.V, it strongly believes that the donation propels in equalizing the economic playing field for the SINASRA beneficiaries by ensuring their participation in education and other daily economic activities without hindrances because of their condition.

In response, Veldsman, who could not hide her joy stressed that the donation is timely as the need for sunscreen is a constant one within the albinism community.
