Kenyans have been left reacting after people living with vitiligo visits Mama Stella of Machachari.
Jagero Lydia Avannah shared the photos on Facebook. She explained that the journey with Mama Stella has begun. She started by explaining that vitiligo is a skin condition in which the skin loses its pigment cells know as melanocites thus white patches develop on the skin. Vitiligo is not contagious, affects people of any age, gender and ethnicity. It has no cure but its manageable. Its exact cause is unknown, but may be due to autoimmune disorder.
At the end of the day, Cindy stepped out of the house for the very first time, not hiding who she is.
The team hopes that Cindy will become more confident, accepts that she is Vitiligo and she is okay.
