I had the opportunity to go to Gambaga, a village near Nalerigu where women declared as 'witches' were outcast. Unfortunately, these women had been accused of being 'witches' for things such as wife to wife jealousy, a husband's disapproval of one of his wives, and commonly when peforming a tradition ritual of killing a chicken in front of the women, with the head landing a particular direction indicating she practices witchcraft. These women had been separated from their families and children and lived together in this village, Gambaga. Our medical team had an opportunity to come to their village and worship with them. We were also able to provide them with reading glasses donated from the United States. The little girl pictured is one of the children living in this village.
