What is Witchcraft Abuse?”

A recent publication: “What is Witchcraft Abuse?” addresses the terrible phenomenon of child branding as witches or as evil spirits among some African communities in the UK. It looks at why children are branded as witches, what kind of children are vulnerable and how they are abused and harmed as a consequence. It also addresses the issue of religion and how some fake pastors are helping to fuel this form of child abuse through wrongful branding as witches. It identifies how children who are branded as witches can be safeguarded and supported and what role AFRUCA is playing to help victims in the UK.

Copies can be downloaded from the website at http://www.afruca.org. This publication is part of the “Safeguarding African Children in the UK” series.
