What is Vitiligo?
Vitiligo is a long-term condition that causes pale, white patches to develop on the skin - in severe cases these cover the whole body. Vitiligo affects one in every hundred people and can strike anyone at any time, often leading to depression and isolation - especially amongst children. We need your help in finding a cure for this debilitating and distressing disease and to support the millions of vitiligo sufferers across the globe.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
