“Thousands of children are being accused of being witches and we’ve both seen torture of children, dead children and frightened children.” These are the words of Danish aid worker Anja Ringgren Loven, who rescued this abandoned, starving two-year-old Nigerian boy. Sick with worms and malnutrition, the boy, now named Hope, had been wandering the streets for eight months.

Hope was discovered on January 31st, and has been receiving medical attention since; thanks to Ms. Loven, he is well on the way to recovery.
