World Vitiligo Day 2016 in Kenya
The World Vitiligo Day walk Kenya was organized by Vitiligo Society of Kenya (VISOKE) on June 26th. It united vitiligo patients and their family members, nurses, cosmetologists and most importantly, the invited guests, 64 people in total. The party of 64 people led by James Laban, VISOKE Executive Secretary, walked 7 km of densely populated streets in Nairobi, and held speeches along the way.
Many thanks to special guests, including:
• Member of county assembly, Miss Wairimu Nje(KEY NOTE SPEAKER)
• Former Member of Parliament, Joseph Makau
• Media from the Kenya Broadcasting Cooperation (KBC)
• Officials of VISOKE (Chairperson: Raphael Makau, Treasurer: Assumpta Wangari)
See photos from the previous walk in 2013.
I support the petition to designate June 25 as Vitiligo World Day and save millions of people worldwide from social isolation and persecution.
