2 year old child from Nigeria who was accused of being a witch by family was left in streets with no concern of his life or death. Luckily he was noticed and rescued by Danish aid worker Anja Ringgren Loven on January 31.
Today, he is under proper nourishment, due medical care and sources say that the child is recovering.
Loven also gave name to the child as “HOPE.” She wrote on her Facebook “Luckily, I rescued the child. Although, I had to give the natives almost all of my money.” He was being tortured by the natives, had worms all over his body and was left wandering in streets with no clothes.
At this the social media went viral with the child’s images and people shared their condolence for child.
Loven is the founder of African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation, which is an institution created three years ago to help children who have been labelled witch and hence neglected, tortured by their families and even killed by members of the community.
Since the images went viral on internet, Hope has received donations worth $1 Million for his medical treatment and has recovered so well that he is able to sit and smile today.
