“Zero zero” – translated literally as “nothing” – is what a boy like Adam is called in Tanzania because of his albino complexion. Adam’s pale skin makes him vulnerable not only to the sun’s rays, but to the most violent and hateful crimes imaginable.
This large scale problem is made worse by local witch doctors that propagate the belief that the body parts of albino children bring good fortune.
