2-Yr-Old Is Starved After Being Accused of Witchcraft—2 Weeks Later, His Transformation is STUNNING


This starved Nigerian boy was found naked, full of worms, and walking the streets of Nigeria alone when he was found by Anja, a Danish rescue worker. The emaciated 2-year-old was abandoned by his family because they believed he was a witch.

“Thousands of children are being accused of being witches and we’ve both seen torture of children, dead children and frightened children,” said Anja.

The little boy has been surviving the last 8 months off of the mere scraps that strangers have thrown to him in the streets.

Anja immediately wrapped the boy (who she named Hope) in a blanket and rushed him to the local hospital.

Sadly, this is not the first time that the rescue worker has witnessed such a horrid case. As the founder of  African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation, Anja is working to help more children who have been neglected and even killed by their families after being accused of witchcraft.

Her center offers food, medical attention, and education for children like Hope.

Thankfully, after a daily blood transfusion, proper nourishment, and medicine to remove the worms, Hope is recovering quite remarkably.

“This is what makes life so beautiful and valuable and therefore I will let the pictures speak for themselves,” wrote Anja.

Just two weeks after he was found, Hope looks like a brand new boy! And his once somber look of desperation has been replaced with a smile from ear to ear!

Only 2 days after Anja petitioned for help for Hope, over $1 million in donations poured in from strangers across the globe.

“With all the money, we can, besides giving Hope the very best treatment, now also build a doctor clinic on the new land and save many more children out of torture!” she shared on Facebook.

    I wonder if the aid worker has ever thought of getting a tattoo?

      That’s a snarky thing to say. Of all the good this lady does you can’t see past her tattoos.

    I can’t believe how some people can only see the negative in a beautiful situation. Who cares if she has tattoos? I don’t see you over there helping or donating to the cause. Shame on you.

    I am greatful for this gesture of the great lady. I have supported about 5 children between 4 and 17 years, all girls. They have come out well, and, all except one is married.

    I totally agree with Linda (which is also my name) this lady is fantastic. I pray God continues to bless her work. People need to look on the inside of a person, I praise her tatoos and all.
