"Belief in magic was almost universal in the past. Almost all cultures believed that you could use supernatural means to help with hunting or to make one’s crops grow better or to make humans or animals more fertile. Magic could also be used to heal the sick. For the great majority of people who lived before the 18th century, magic was an ordinary part of everyday life," said Anja.

Hope is one of the 76 children in the orphanage who have been rescued by the charity.

Hope is one of the many victims of culture believing in superstitions, often stem from death or illness in the family, crop failures, infertility and many others - branded them as witches.
