Tanzania Albinos In US For Prosthetics After Their Limbs were Cut Off By Witchdoctors

albAround five albino children from Tanzania are in the US to be fitted with prosthetics.

Their limbs were cut off because of the belief by some witchdoctors that the body parts have properties that can be used in potions to bring good luck and wealth.

“They cut off the hand… they hit my mum and they came to me with machetes,” five-year-old Baraka Cosmas Lusambo told the AP news agency.

The New York-based Global Medical Relief Fund is helping the five children.
