A woman saves a hungry little boy accused of witchcraft.

Anja Ringgren Loven, co-founder of the African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation, based in Uyo, Nigeria, saw a two-year-old boy wandering the streets. He was incredibly thin and was not cared for by anyone. The reason for his abandonment? His parents thought he was a wizard.

Anja gave this boy some water, and tried to feed him with some crackers, then wrapped him in a blanket and took him to the hospital for proper medical care. She also named him Hope.

Many might think that Anja is an angel, but this Danish native is simply doing what she can for the countless abandoned or orphaned children in Nigeria, just like Hope. The story of Hope is common, and many children in Nigeria need love, care, and even basic necessities.

Anja has worked tirelessly all her life to provide care and education to these forgotten children that they need to grow and succeed in life.

This is the photo that shocked the Internet. Little Hope drinks some water from Anja’s water bottle. He was abandoned because his parents and the community believed he practiced witchcraft.
