While rescuing the children that has been accused of witch craft we're not only risking our own lives but also the children. To have a reliable car that can manage the harsh terrain would be of great help during our rescues.
In our daily work we are relying on proper transportation to be able to drive long distances on really bad roads to the villages where the accused children live, which is why we are now raising money for a rescue car for the organization, without a proper car we can simply not reach those small villages in time. The car also serves in the daily activities for the children.
The short term impact is saving the children's lives and bringing them to Land of Hope for medical care, psychological care, nourishing and schooling.
The long-term goal is to bring the children back to their families, if we find the child is safe. We experience that when the children come back, well fed, cared for and in school it opens up for a communication with the families and the local community. That is the best way for us to bring awareness and to get to the bottom of the superstition around witch craft, thus preventing more children from getting in harms way.
