Vitiligo is a multifactorial skin depigmenting disorder with an etiology (the cause and progress of the disorder) not well understood. Most devastating for the patient with Vitiligo are the social, psychological, emotional and sexual ramifications of these disfiguring disorders.                                            

We truly offer desired help and a shoulder to lean on! We are appealing for funds for our pressing Needs to carry out our projects and replication of our work across Africa. Because we believe in everyday people, we are appealing for minimum of N1, 000 from everyone to enable us impact more lives positively as truly our work goes beyond just persons with Vitiligo, but anyone with image alteration (the disfigured) etc.

With many Vitiligo patients responding poorly to the current therapies, the negative effects, struggle on how to live with such disfiguring conditions in a society where it is still misunderstood due to beliefs, we are directing more focus to the following with the funds -:

  1. I used to have vitiligo all over my body and although I accept the reasons to not want to get rid of it but personally it was something I wanted to do. I tried a million creams & supplements but nothing ever really did anything for me but I was actually able to dramatically reduce my vitiligo after browsing online and trying different methods. The 3 things that worked for me (do them all):

    1. Mix Turmeric Powder And Mustard Oil. This stuff works amazing by just mixing the oil with the powder, applying to the affected skin and leaving it for about 15mins before drying it off. Repeat daily or more.

    2. Drink water stored in a copper utensil. This will help in increasing the production of melanin in your body and your skin will show reduced whiteness.

    3. Follow every single step in the free video & in the guide seen at naturalvitiligotreatmentsystems.com to get to the root of the problem naturally!!

    Try my advice and hopefully you will get as much luck with getting rid of your vitiligo as i did :) xxx
