Stop discriminating people living with albinism-Netone

By Faith Chimutsa

People living with albinism are often discriminated against and stigmatized because of their condition, NetOne Group CEO Engineer Raphael Mushanawani said during a plough back to the community programme in Chipinge.

NetOne through its Community Social Responsibility, Health & Care Pillar is embarking nation-wide campaign to alleviate people with albinism by raising awareness of the condition and combat discrimination.

“NetOne is committed to support people with albinism, as a way to make real difference in the lives of these individuals and their families,” Engineer Mushanawani emphasized.

NetOne in partnership with Hope For The Future Foundation this week recognized the existence of people living with Albinism in Chipinge and surrounding areas for the distribution of sunscreen lotions, female sanitary pads and lip balms.

The mobile telephone network operating entity has taken an initiative to upkeep people with albinism as a way to give back to the communities in which it operates.

NetOne continues to provide information and resources to help people with albinism to uplift their self-confidence as well as providing educational materials about albinism to employees and the public.

The strategic partnership with Hope For The Future Foundation has been NetOne’s way to provide access to education, healthcare, and other essential services.

The company is also advocating for the rights of people with albinism and help dispel myths and stereotypes about the condition.

The partnership is there to ensure that people living with Albinism are treated fairly and have equal access to opportunities.

This initiative by netone is a way to help to create a more inclusive and accepting society for all.
