She pointed out that albinos have the right to live and associate with others in society, saying that being born without pigment was not their fault.
Nzelu said that the NGO was founded to sensitize and create the needed awareness on disability generally, disclosing that White Angels Foundation was committed to the welfare of albinos.
She advised albinos to be focused and not to see themselves as inferior to other persons, saying that feeling inferior to others was defeatist.

Also speaking, a member of the NGO, Marian Aniako, while expressing her delight for the large turnout of the children, said White Angels Foundation, offered a scholarship to some albinos in Delta State last year and that they would stop at nothing to promote the welfare of children with disability.
