Found this a fascinating read... check it out. Hadn't known before the traditional beliefs (and potentially grim consequences) associated with being born an albino child in Tanzania.  A friend of "The Forever Years" from Uganda, wrote this comment to this post: "All the albino people are really suffering in Tanzania and they are frequently abused by other people in the society. They use them as human sacrifice for satanic powers believing that the albino people can make one get rich if offered as a sacrifice.  This is terribly bad and now the same habit has been spreading: some people here in Uganda have developed this tendency. Lets all pray for our nations and pray that God should change their hearts."
