Tubes of special sunscreen for extremely sensitive skin were handed over to SINASRA in aid of the Namibian Albino Community by the Ohorongo Otavi Community Trust (OOCT), in collaboration with Support e.V. Ulm, Germany.

The donation of 3600 tubes EUCERIN to the estimated value of N$ 300.000, - was officiated on 11 September at the Windhoek Central Hospital, Oncology Department.

"SINASRA is doing an excellent job in the prevention of skin cancer in those individuals with Albinism. As OOCT, in collaboration with Support e.V., we are proud to be able to make a difference with our donation of specialized sunscreens. We have to commend Dr Stoermer, Dr Peggy Emwula and Dr. Annelle Zietsman for the hard work they do daily to benefit the Albino community in Namibia," said Carina Sowden, Marketing & Communications Manager of Ohorongo Cement.

“The present number of Albinos in Namibia is close to 1800 according to Hospitals, Schools and Missions. All need specialized sunscreen due to the very sensitive nature of their skins to prevent them from developing skin cancer,” said Dr Peter Stoermer from SINASRA.

Dr Stoermer expressed SINASRA’s sincere appreciation and gratitude for the donation, as these specialized sunscreens are highly expensive.
