Sometimes in February 2016, this young boy was condemned to die after a pastor accused him of witchcraft and his images went viral. Abandoned by his parents and community. He was rescued by Anja Ringgren Loven, a Danish woman living in Nigeria at the time who bent down and began feeding the boy and giving him water. She runs a children’s centre where the children she saves receive medical care, food and schooling.
Ms Loven is the founder of African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation, which she created to help children which have been labelled as witches and therefore neglected and even killed by members of their community.
Three years, 5 months later, this is him. Back to school, eating well and his new name is HOPE
