Two and a half years, Ellin is a child like this. It is located on the side of the road, his body having been severely burned by boiling water. Nwanakwo, eight years old, had poured acid on him after being labeled as an assistant, and died shortly after.
Back to Africa’s child witches is a documentary that follows the work of Gary Foxcroft, an Englishman whose charity, Stepping Stones, raises funds to help care for more than 150 children accused of witchcraft, and blamed the disaster, death and hunger. Narrated by Sophie Okonedo.
