Nestled away in a little dorpie outside Pietermaritzburg is the Ashburton Mission. It serves as a home to 22 children who have been abused or born with abnormalities. With many of the abuse cases, Director Stuart Knight, explains that they are abused because they are born with disabilities and/or abnormalities. Such extreme abuse where children's body parts are severed for use in witchcraft.
