Mostly women and children, those that are of no use to society anymore, the old, the difficult and mentally ill. The consequences of the belief in witches are dire: In Ghana those blamed to possess evil powers find refuge in so called witch camps. Six of them are spread around the north of the country. They house nearly 1500 women and some children.Some of these accused women strive to acquire the power of witchcraft others are condemned by society to be witches and bear the stigma of an outcast.
