Under the Same Sun

We need  dermatological votes to help this charity. This is the organisation that helps to support the albino programme in the RDTC . They are excellent and have done a huge amount to support patients with albinism and to prevent skin cancer. Their funding allowed the RDTC to set up its own sun screen manufacture unit as well as the occupational training for albino patients in Moshi. USS is based in Vancouver

Perhaps the board can help and distribute to other dermatologists ? Voting is very simple and takes less than a minute.

Best wishes
