The starving kid from Nigeria who was left to die by his parents is now attending school!

-

In January 2016, a Danish aid worker went on a rescue mission on the streets of Nigeria and found a starving child on the verge of death. The same moment was captured in a
photograph, in which she holds a water bottle toward the weak lips of the young boy.
One year later, the same starving kid, started school after a full recovery, and a recreation of his first photo shows just how far he has come from that grievous life.

Anja Ringgren Lovén works for an organisation called DINNødhjælp means “Your Relief”
which found this abandoned boy named Hope.

They rescue children labeled as ‘witches,’ who are often tortured and killed by their
poverty-stricken parents.

Some of the religious leaders in Nigeria accuse these minors of sorcery hoping to charge
these poor families for exorcism services, an epidemic Anja and her team combat by
sheltering the witch hunt affected children.
