The Impact Of Your Gift

Laoise was born with the genetic condition Oculocutaneous albinism which affects the production of melanin which gives colour to skin, hair, and eyes. Laoise and her family do not let her vision impairment hold her back. She is a great friend and regularly meets other children who also have Albinism which is very important for peer support. Laoise is due to start 3rd class in September and enjoys school.
