ASSOCIATION OF GAMBIA ALBINOS LAUNCHED VISION SCREENING FOR PERSONS WITH ALBINISM

On Saturday 18 July 2020, Association Of Gambia Albinos being the only association for Persons With Albinism in The Gambia successfully launched Vision Screening at Sheikh Zaeed Regional Eye Care Center in Kanifing.

Since it is realised that Persons With Albinism by virtue of lack of melanine in their eyes have low vision, deemed it necessary to have Persons With Albinism screen their visions in order to know the distance they see, whether it is necessary to prescribe specific equipment for them or not. This exercise was in collaboration with Modou Inner Njie Eye Care Center and Badou Jobe Foundation. As a result, Persons With Albinism have responded to the call and had their vision tested and the right prescription recommended for them. It was a joyful moment for PERSONS With Albinism and thus, called upon stakeholders to partner with Association Of Gambia Albinos in providing them the support they need.

The Executive Director of AGA Mr. Jubairu Janneh appeal for more collaboration for such initiatives for Persons With Albinos. The Ophthalmologist of the Regional Eye Care Center DR. Aba Hydara said the Eye Care Center will always rally behind to support such vision screening for PWAS.
