Four Tanzanian children with albinism who lost limbs, fingers, and teeth in superstition-driven attacks made their way home this week after receiving prosthetics – and a dose of confidence – in the United States.
The children, ages 7, 14, 15 and 16, were treated free of charge at Shriners Hospital for Children in Philadelphia.
Near the end of their stay, they would walk into the hospital with confidence, sporting sunglasses and button-down shirts and looking “like they were home,” Kozin said.
