World Vitiligo Day 2016 in Cuba
A newly established vitiligo support group in Cuba held celebrations on June 25th. Thanks to Jorge Luis Perez for organizing this wonderful event and sharing with us a recipe of vitiligo-themed cocktail 'Black & White'!
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
