That little starving kid and his angel care worker, remember?
A young charity worker named Anja Ringgren Loven had rescued a starving two-year-old Nigerian boy who was found naked covered with worms all over his body. The boy was abandoned by his family. The picture of Loven giving water to this kid had gone viral on the Internet.
Let's see how the life of this kid has changed now!
He had survived on the leftovers thrown by the passersby for eight months.
Ms. Loven had founded African Children's Aid Education and Development Foundation three years ago to aid kids who were considered as a witch and abandoned by the members of their community.
She wrote in a Facebook post, "Thousands of children are being accused of being witches, and we've both seen the torture of children, dead children, and frightened children."
Hope was given treatment to remove the He also received regular blood transfusions to yield more red blood cells into his body.
She explained, "Hope's condition is stable now. He's taking food for himself, and he responds to the medicine he gets. Today, he has had powers to sit up and smiling at us. He's a strong little boy."
She said, "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!"
Ms. Loven said, "Hope even plays with my own son. I just don't know how to describe it in words. This is what makes life so beautiful and valuable, and therefore I will let the pictures speak for themselves."
He now eats properly and has got more strength.
Love and caring which he received from Ms. Loven has turned his life.
One year has made such a big difference, he is the same boy who was abandoned by family.
All thanks to Ms. Loven.
