STATEMENT ON PERSONS WITH ALBINISM
Ntambo Kaendera- FoH Eye-See Project, Director: Through most of her childhood Ntambo had no clear picture of what the world really looked like. She struggled to see due to poor eyesight until the day she was taken to a clinic in Blantyre, Malawi. It was at this meager clinic that she was given her first pair of eyeglasses; this simple gift changed her life. The cause of Ntambo’s impaired vision was glaucoma – a progressive degenerative eye disease which affects the optic nerve. Ntambo is the director of the FOH EYE-SEE Project whose mission is to detect glaucoma during early childhood while the disease is still in its early development stages. Ntambo also an international recording artist.
