2-year-old ‘witch boy’ rescued by Danish aid worker begins school


One year after the harrowing pictures of a starving two-year-old Nigerian boy, later christened Hope, was rescued after being found emaciated and riddled with worms, wandering the streets because his family thought he was a witch, his saviour, Anja Ringgren Loven, a Danish woman living in Africa and founder of African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation, has shared an update on Hope – “He will start school this week”.

Ms Loven, posted on her Facebook page;

“On the 30 of January 2016 I went on a rescue mission with David Emmanuel Umem, Nsidibe Orok and our Nigerian team. A rescue mission that went viral, and today it’s exactly 1 year ago the world came to know a young little boy called Hope 👦🏿💚🇳🇬
This week Hope will start school 📚✏️”

Some individuals expressed overwhelming gratitude to Loven for her selfless service. Below are some comments;
