Marchant Dessalines, Port-au-Prince, July 2007.
A 5 year old albino boy lives in one of the poorest slums in the capital called Marchant Dessalines. In countries with a black population albinism is considered a disability, and people with albinism often consider themselves to be disabled. Those people face problems with their eyesight, and due to the climate in a hot country like Haiti, Albinos have severe problems with their skin.  (image by Alice Smeets)
