-Worry Over Increasing Discrimination
The Liberia Albino Society (LAS) has alarmed over what they consider as high level of discriminations melted against people living with albinism in the country. In December of 2014, the United Nations General Assembly adopted a resolution proclaiming with immediate effect from 2015, June 13 as an International Day of Albinism.

Speaking Tuesday, June 13, 2017, during the official celebration of the International Albinism Awareness Day (IAAD) in Bentol City, Montserrado County, the Executive Director of the Liberia Albino Society, Patricia Logan said the resolution on the rights of people living with albinism be taken seriously by the government of Liberia.
“It is our joy and hope that the resolution on the rights of persons living with albinism is taken seriously by our government. We are sending this information to our President, Madam Ellen Johnson Sirleaf, that they need to take the rights of person living with albinism seriously,” Madam Logan stressed.
Madam Logan claimed that everywhere around the world the resolution on the rights with persons living albinism has been taken very seriously, thus, this day of every year is set aside as a holiday to be observed by that country.
The United Nations Council adopted a resolution in 2013 calling for the prevention of attacks and discriminations against persons living with albinism worldwide and in March 2015, the council created the mandate of independent expert on the enjoyment of human rights by persons with albinism, this right, the Executive Director of the Liberia Albino Society believes is not being enjoyed by albinos in Liberia.
She wants this day of every year be pronounced by the Liberian leader as a working holiday, something she believes would strengthen the rights of the people living with albinism in the country.
For his part, the political leader of the Movement for Economic Empowerment (MOVEE), Dr. J. Mills Jones said people who are physically challenged face many difficulties in the country, noting that it is time for the government of Liberia working along with its partners to do more in correcting what he described as imbalances as the physically challenged are concern.
“For me discriminations against any Liberian, especially for conditions over which they have no control, that is politically wrong as well as morally wrong and this is why, I pledge to continue working with you,” Dr. Jones assured albinos.
Dr. Jones vowed that when elected as Liberia’s next president in the impending October’s polls, he would ensure that the problems of those living with albinism and physically challenged Liberians would be at the top of his government’s agenda.
MOVEE political leader asserted that a person living with albinism may be challenged by the ray of the sun but his or her brain is shaper as the rays of a blade, adding that if given the proper education and training can contribute to the growth and development of Liberia.
