Help Us Save the Witch Children of Nigeria

by DINNodhjaelp Vetted since 2016 Top Ranked Effective Nonprofit

Summary

DINNoedjaelp is a humanitarian organization, founded in 2012. The organization performs an important educational work to break the superstition in Nigeria. Due to the high superstition many children are accused of being witches which often leads to inhumane treatments of torture, dehumanization and banishment by the family and the local community, many of these children die due to unhealed wounds and malnutrition. We try to rescue as many of these unfortunate souls and house them.

Challenge

A lot of children in Nigeria are accused of being a witch.The children are often tortured and even killed. We rescue these children and usually they would require medical attention. With the funds donated we would be able to employ nurses and a doctor to work in our newly built "Hope's Clinic" and have the clinic furnitured and ready with medicine and other patient care products.

Solution

Hope's Clinic will give the abused children the medical care and attention they need. They will get the required medicine needed to recover. DINNoedhjaelp also has an orphanage, where the children will move into, when they are healthy enough. The children at our orphanage get the opportunity to attend school. Education creates development and the children's schooling also helps to process their horrible past of severe abuse.

Long-Term Impact

Hope's Clinic will be open to the whole community where the villagers can come and use our Health Clinic. We also put a great effort in educating the local community. We prove to the whole local community that the children are not witches, but that the ones who accused them of being witches have been indoctrinated by either the pastor or other villagers. By this work, we can stop the superstition.
