When he was 2 years old Anja Ringggren Loven took the boy in and wow what a difference
This picture, of a starving Nigerian boy on the verge of death, went viral.
Anja Ringggren took in the boy, cleaned him up and nurtured him, after he was abandoned by his community when they believed that he was practicing witchcraft.
Loven is the co-founder of African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation in Nigeria and was appalled at the reason that the boy was not being fed or cared for. She was told he had no mother or father.
Under Loven’s care, the boy began to gain weight and get healthy.
Loven named him Hope, and 7 months later he has made a complete transformation.
