Sun protection!

In early April 2013, the Austrian headwear label Capo sent information about UV-sun protection activities in South-East Africa. On occasion of 'Albinism Awareness Day' in Blantyre (Republic Malawi) last month, Capo handed out 600 hats and caps enhanced with additional UV-protection to people with melanin production defect. People with less melanin are more endangered to get skin cancer than the ones with more skin pigments. But in general, everybody - the ones with darker or lighter color, can get skin cancer.
