The project seeks to bring comfort and hope to persons (particularly women and girl child) who continue to face various forms of discrimination and abuses in most parts of Ghana through the Story Based Trauma Healing.
In northern Ghana hundreds of women and men are accused of sorcery and witchcraft by relatives or members of their community ends up living in ‘specialized camps’ after fleeing or being banished from their homes. These camps (6), which are home to majority of women and children, offer poor living conditions and little hope of a normal life. These persons have trauma issues having fled discrimination, threats or even mob justice after being accused of witchcraft and blamed for ‘crimes’ such as causing sickness, droughts or fires, cursing a neighbour or even just appearing in someone’s dream.
A warm welcome to the Bible Society of Ghana
