Aged Women are targeted for hate and attacks by their communities usually at stages when they struggle with their mental health and their behaviors are misunderstood by the indigenous people. They also become target for people when misfortune befalls a family. They are usually thought of us evil with spiritual powers to destroy or kill at that age.
They are often then banished or ostracised to live in Camps popularly known as the witch camp which becomes a safe haven for them to prevent their death. Unfortunately, not all of them make it to the camps. They are sometimes killed before they make it there.
We visited Northern Ghana to support and to tell their story through a documentary.
