Shelter for boys who have been branded witches
Africa Outreach Malawi has opened a new shelter for children and youths accused of witchcraft in the Namiyango area of Blantyre. This shelter caters exclusively for boys and supplements the shelter for girls that was founded last year. Administrator Frank Phiri and counsellor Rev. Aubrey Goliat hope that other organisations will join hands in addressing this scourge in the Malawi society. The project is funded by Across Outreach from the Netherlands.
