This Boy Was Called A Witch And His Family Abandoned Him, Try To Control Your Tears In The End!

It's heartbreaking to know how so many kids get expelled from their community due to wrong beliefs and superstitions. A young charity worker of Africa named Anja Ringgren Loven fed water from her bottle to a two-year-old Nigerian boy who was found naked and covered with worms all over his body. While there are babies getting heavier, this poor kid was found starving on the street for eight months.

The boy was abandoned by his family because they thought he was a witch. Fortunately, the ill toddler was rescued by a Danish aid worker who took him to the hospital for treatment.

The photos captured and shared by Ms Loven on social media will bring tears to your eyes.
