Saving Africa's Witch Children

Show Summary

This chilling documentary exposes the appalling treatment of children deemed witches, and chronicles the work of two men who have devoted their lives to helping those ostracized by their communities. Set in southeastern Nigeria, any tragedy – disease, miscarriage, unemployment or death in the family – is considered the work of witches, and defenseless children, sometimes as young as three months, can be scapegoated and subjected to horrifying punishments. Learn about the work of Gary Foxcroft, a man trying desperately to help these innocent children escape from madness.
