I spent one week with an amazing lady named Mariam Staford Bandaba, born in Ntobee,Ngara, Tanzania. Born with albinism she has faced many hurdles, including that of being amputated by misinformed people who believed her condition to be some result of witchcraft. Arrests were made but the people responsible for this were soon released on account of no evidence.

Today, Mariam lives in a safe house under the organisation of Under The Same Sun, UTSS and is working towards being a tailor.

She has a son who comes to visit her.
