A Danish woman who saves abandoned children in Nigeria made the news and brought major focus to the horrible situation which these young children go through while highlighting one particular child, a 2-year-old boy who was left to die on the streets.
Apparently, this kid, along with many others, are abandoned by their families because they are found to be witches under some deluded rational involving accusations of them trying to kill their parents or siblings.
Social aid worker Anja Ringgren Loven of Denmark found this little boy roaming the streets.
On January 31st of 2016, he was rescued. This photo shows Loven giving the poor child biscuits and water.
The child was in such desperation that she took him in her arms to care for him.
His chances of survival were very thin.
But they all worked to try and restore the little boys health. It wasnt an easy task.
The name Hope was given to the boy. Loven wrote: The day I carried this sweet little boy in my arms for the very first time, I was so sure he would not survive. Every breath he took was a struggle and I
did not want him to die without a name, without dignity, so I named him Hope. Hope to
me is a special name. Not only the meaning of Hope but what it stands for.
Many years ago I got the name HOPE tattooed on my fingers because to me it means: Help One
Person Every day.
Hope ended up responding positively to the treatment given.
He went from total near death emancipation, to this:
He is now at an orphanage, very healthy and happy!
