Patricia N. C. Logan, the Executive Director of the Liberia Albinism Society (LAS), is currently participating in an International West African Exchange Program on the Rights of Persons With Albinism in Freetown, Sierra Leone.
This program is a collaboration between the Medical Assistance of Sierra Leone-United Kingdom, the Sierra Leone Association of Persons With Albinism, and Lancaster University.
From now until late July of this year, the program will bring together participants from Liberia, Sierra Leone, Guinea, Ghana, and other West African countries to establish a united voice for Persons With Albinism (PWA).
During the three-day gathering, Madam Logan and her LAS colleagues, including the Director of Press and Public Affairs Ezekiel D. Klah, the Director of Protocol Patrick Coleman Jr., and the Chief Driver Mohammed Kenneth, will engage with various stakeholders to establish potential partnerships that will benefit PWA’s in Liberia.
The ultimate goal of this program is to improve the rights and well-being of PWA’s across West Africa through collaboration and advocacy.
