Witch hunt ; A cry for help (25 May 2004)


In remote villages in eastern India, if a woman is accused as a witch, she will be killed. People take advantage of this to rob women of their land. It is not until a woman who stood up to the accusation did the government outlaw this practice. The severely handicapped brought their plea for round-the-clock care to the Legislative Council. Law Chi-kwong (Legislator, Social Welfare Constituency) says home-care for the severely handicapped is much cheaper than keeping them in hospitals. Ophelia Chan Chiu-ling (Assistant Director, Social Welfare Department) talks about government aids that the handicapped can apply.
