Lorea is a dermatologist. Since 2008 she has participated in workshops training African doctors on how to treat skin cancer in people with albinism. With one or two annual surgical-training trips to Tanzania in the last ten years, she lived closely and witnessed the birth of the first sunscreen made specifically for people with albinism produced in Africa.

Project Coordinator
With a degree in mathematics, her curiosity about Chinese culture pushed her to study the language and move to the Asian giant in 2011. A semester of immersion would become 6 years in the country.

In 2019 she changes continent and starts a new adventure in Africa. After some first experiences working in development projects in Uganda and Kenya she discovers the work of Beyond Suncare and begins to learn about the unfair situation in which people with albinism live in Africa, so she decides to embark on the implementation of Beyond projects in Malawi. Her sensitivity and management skills have led her to expand her responsibility and commitment within the organization and since 2021 she oversees the implementation of all Beyond projects in Anglophone Africa.
