HAPSTA/CRARN Reunifies Two Alleged 'Childwitches'

Earnest Okong and Daniel Uwein Amba, two children who were stigmatized, brutalized and sent away from home for being witches, have both been reunified with their counseled families. The two children who have been living at the HAPSTA/CRARN center, Ikot-Afaha since January, 2013, were rehabilitated and groomed to live normal lives, during their stay at our center.
