Land of Hope, founded in 2012, is leading the battle against superstition, fought through information and advocacy work in Nigeria, where thousands of children are accused of being witches. The children are stigmatized, abandoned by their family and local community, tortured and killed, or they end up dying from wounds and malnutrition. We try to rescue as many of them as possible and house them at our children's center where they are medically treated, protected, educated, and cared for.
Thousands of children in Nigeria are accused of witchcraft and are then excluded, tortured, and even killed. We rescue these children who usually require medical attention. With the funds donated we are able to employ nurses and a doctor to work in our Hope's Clinic, to furniture the clinic with beds for newly rescued children, and to have medicine and other patient care products ready.
Hope's Clinic gives the abused children the medical care and attention they need. Once the children are healthy enough, they move into Land of Hope's orphanage. The children also get the opportunity to attend school. Education creates development and the children's schooling also helps them process their horrible past of severe abuse. The funds donated will provide the children with school uniforms, bags, sandals, books, and pens so they can get educated and build an independent life.
With care, protection, and education of the children as well as their surrounding communities, we lay the foundation for a future, where the children grow up to be independent, active, and social individuals who contribute to the development of their community. Through advocacy and information work, we can live in a world where no child suffers due to superstition.
