Barimini Banawadana has lived in Gambaga for ten years. A girl that she hardly knew came to her house one morning accusing her of witchcraft. Even if she denied, her husband has been forced to bring her to the camp. She didn't know where she was going because she has never heard about witchcraft before. Even in front the Gambarana she insisted of not being a witch, so he sacrified a fowl. The chief explained her the meaning of this sacrifice and adviced her to settle in the camp because she would be in danger once back home. She was in chock when her husband left the camp without her. She didn't even have the opportunity to say goodbye to her 6 children. It took her one year to speack about her story with the women of the camp but she is still feeling sad because she wants to leave the camp but knows it will never happen.
