A letter on World Vitiligo Day

June 25, 2015
Letter to Ogo, VITSAF by Yemi


Dear Ogo,

Today is June 25, a day set aside to set aside as World Vitiligo Day, your creation, your initiative.

While growing up, my first reaction to anyone living with vitiligo was to cringe at such sight and imagine the severity of the burns he/she had.

I was ignorant of such condition until my Uncle who is a Pharmacist enlightened me on it.

Just like most "albinos", many patients of Vitiligo are of low self esteem, little or no self confidence and victims of discrimination.
