Join the Fight. Stop the Stigma. Sign the Appeal – Support the World Vitiligo Day

In 2010, BellaNaija ran a series called “Skin Deep” which showcased three beautiful women who had unique skin conditions which we wanted to talk about: Vitiligo, Psoriasis and Albinism. Ogo Maduewesi talked about Vitiligo and it was really inspiring and enlightening. If you missed it, you should check it out Here.

Ogo took her story to the world and we’re very proud to be a part of the work against the stigmatizing people with Vitiligo. Ogo has passionately put all of her support for this cause and it is in its 3rd year of running. Today, Ogo’s organization is calling for signatures to present it to the UN for the recognition of the World Vitiligo day – June 25

For more information, please visit the World Vitiligo Day Facebook page to join the fight towards creating awareness and reducing the stigma attached to Vitiligo.

    I read the interview with Ogo back in 2010 and was inspired by her efforts to educate the society about vitiligo. I am happy to see that she is still fighting a worthy cause. Welldone Ogo!

    I am so proud of what Ogo is doing! The stigma is unfortunately very present and emotionally takes a toll on people that have Vitiligo. I am all for more tolerance and compassion towards one another. Yes to World Vitiligo Day!

    The biggest sign of the skin disease ‘vitiligo’ is the loss of the pigment which produces the white patches (depigmentation) on the skin.
