witchcraft accusations

Barely a month after our dear pastor friend had to bury 4 youth after they had thrown themselves in a fire, today we were confronted with another so-called pastor who accused some teenage girls of being witches. The three girls, aged 14, 16 and 17 were consequently expelled from their families and beaten so badly by the community that the police had to intervene to save their lives. They came to the girlshome for help but the home is full beyond capacity and we had to house them in an empty room. Please pray that the Lord may provide the necessary resources so that we can help children and youths who after being accused of being witches are in grave danger without protection or rights.
