While narrating her story, he tagged relevant authorities to come to her aid. “Her name is Grace, a 12 year old albino girl from Benue State tiv by tribe. She stays with her aunty who is a Farmer. Grace hawks vegetable from morning to evening under the scutching Abuja sun.

“Today I met her taking a shade in a locked down shop because the sun has affected Her vision she could barely see & her skin appeared reddish.

“As a vulnerable girl child living with albinism, hawking without a protection in this era of pandemic when her mates are at home is extremely dangerous. Walking under the sun will not only damage her eyes but also skin.”
