Albino Children in Tanzania Targeted by Body Part Hunters

Children born with albinism in Tanzania live in constant danger of being attacked by people looking to profit from superstitious beliefs. About one in 20,000 people is born with albinism, lacking pigment in their hair, skin, and eyes. In Tanzania, according to reporting from the Thomson Reuters Foundation, albino body parts are highly valued in witchcraft and can fetch a high price: “Superstition leads many to believe albino children are ghosts who bring bad luck. Some believe the limbs are more potent if the victims scream during amputation, according to a 2013 United Nations report.” Reuters also notes, “The United Nations estimates about 75 albinos have been killed in the east African nation since 2000 and have voiced fears of rising attacks ahead of this year’s election, as politicians seek good luck charms from witch doctors.“ Reuters photographer Carlo Allegri recently documented the lives of several Tanzanian children receiving care in New York after being brutalized in their home country.


As for role models, Jian chose Swings, Leesang chose Justin Bieber and Big Bang’s Taeyang, Taeho chose Michael Jackson, and Ungjae chose Epik High’s Tablo and Big Bang’s G-Dragon. They also spared no compliments for their senior groups in the agency, ZE:A and Nine Muses.  

Lastly they said they wanted to win the best rookie award of 2016!

Original 1934 International News newspaper press photo of Grace Budd (victim to cannibal serial killer Albert Fish) and Yetta Abramowitz (possible victim). Attachment on the back reads:

“At the left is Grace Budd, whose kidnapping and subsequent murder six years ago, has been confessed by Albert H. Fish. Detectives working on the case are now trying to connect Fish with other crimes against childhood. All unsolved, and committed many years ago. One of this type was the murder, seven years ago of Yetta Abramowitz (right). She was found on the roof of a Bronx Tenement.”
