International charity Operation Smile is helping Malawians with cleft lips and palates remove shame and embarrassment stemming from their condition. The U.S.-based charity has so far given free surgeries to more than 1,000 cleft patients in Malawi and is working on reducing a shortage of local surgeons who do corrective surgeries. Lameck Masina reports from Zomba, Malawi.
In Malawi, a young albino man is using music to fight discrimination and misconceptions about the genetic condition in a country where more than 100 people with albinism have been attacked since 2014. Lazarus Chigwandali has long been performing on the streets of Lilongwe. But after catching the eye of a Swedish producer, he began work on an album that is due out in August. He's also about to embark on a nationwide tour to promote a documentary about the plight of albinos in Malawi.
