In pictures: Togo's voodoo market
World pharmacy

In the heart of Togo's capital, Lome, is a market dedicated to the sale of ingredients which traditional healers say can make magic charms.

People who practise the voodoo tradition believe that life derives from the natural forces of earth, water, fire and air.

Joseph, a healer from neighbouring Benin, says:

"This place is like a pharmacy for everybody in the world. When someone has a serious sickness and the hospital cannot help, they come here to the fetish market."
