On Monday, businessman Collen Mashawana visited a family of five who live in a shack in a small town called Vosman just outside Witbank.

The family of five includes children, including one who has albinism. The businessman was touched by the family's living conditions, especially taking into consideration the special attention the child needs.

According to the Afribiz founder, the family has been staying in the dilapidated shack for more than three decades and they have no access to running water or a proper sewerage system.

To top it off, the shack is within the flood line, which poses a risk to their safety, Mashawana added.

Mashawana and his partners spent the day with the family and he vowed to build them a new home within the next couple of weeks.

"This visit has further shown me the heart-wrenching reality of people who live with albinism. They are vulnerable and there is an urgent need to educate the general public," Mashawana said.
