Earlier this month, the Telegraph posted a feature on Liberia’s ‘child witches’ on its website. It’s compelling, troubling and extremely well written – worthy of a read, if you can spare a couple of minutes. A similar article from the Guardian is also doing the rounds on social media. It’s not a new story, but still an important piece.
The phenomenon of witchcraft accusations against children is coming into the public eye, more and more. It’s a very uncomfortable experience, because it means we’re becoming aware of the sheer scale of the problem. But something is being done about it. The Stop Child Witchcraft Accusations coalition is¬†equipping churches and individuals to address witchcraft-related abuse. BCT is proud to be a part of SCWA. There’s a lot of work still to be done, but we’re glad to be a small part of the solution to this issue.
