The boy was born in a small village in Senegal. The family has only his father and 10 other children, two of whom are albino: Amadou himself and his younger sister.
Due to poverty, most families do not have access to free medicine. And there is also no knowledge how to care for children with albinism. Therefore, they are constantly exposed to serious illnesses.
Amadou came under the care of the foundation in September 2021. The boy's condition was severe and neglected. His arms and legs were covered with boils, and his head was covered with bloody crusts from sunburn.
The Foundation financed a full examination of the boy and diagnosed him with chronic ulcerative dermatosis. Amadou underwent long-term treatment, after which he got much better.
In order to prevent a relapse of the disease, Amadou needs: good nutrition, hygiene, medication, protection and skin care with SPF creams, which the Foundation regularly provides him with.
Also, Amadou, like most people with albinism, has a vision problem. He can't see very well. He needs eye surgery.
