In this article we will tell you about the story of Hope. Hope, a Nigerian child of just two years, is the protagonist of an incredible story that touches hearts all over the world.
This little child was abandoned on the street by her family because they thought she was a witch. If it had not been for a Danish activist, she would probably have died begging on the streets of the community in which she lived.
After spending a few months recovering, Hope has undergone an incredible transformation. Her story has been used on social media in the fight to increase support for orphans in her country.
Last January, the Danish activist Anja Ringgren Loven found a two-year-old walking around the streets outside Abuja, Nigeria’s capital. She was naked and suffering from severe malnutrition.
According to The Independent, Anja is the founder of the African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation (a charity for the development and education of African children). Her organization rescues children accused of witchcraft from being abandoned and even killed.
Hope was found in a severely debilitated condition due to malnutrition and intestinal parasites.
When she saw the baby in such a state, Anja gave her water and wrapped her in a blanket and immediately transported her to a hospital in Uyo. There, she received intensive antiparasitic treatment and sustained blood transfusion to treat the severe anemia she was suffering from.
Hope had probably tried to survive on the streets by eating leftovers she has found in the trash for at least eight months.
From the moment Anja found Hope, she has posted a series of photos and videos on social networks to raise money to pay for Hope’s medical expenses.
This turned out to be one of the best decisions she has ever made. In less than 48 hours, the donations flowed in, reaching almost five million kroner.
In her thank you note, she said:
With all that money, we can build a clinic and hopefully save many more children.
After two months in treatment, Hope looked completely different .
In the latest photos, one can see her smiling in clean surroundings that are so markedly different from the dirty streets where she was found.
Even though she is still under medical supervision , the little girl can start all over again and have the happy childhood all children deserve.
Thanks to the donations she has received. Then the Anja Ringgren Act will be able to save many more children like Hope, who are found under the most inhuman conditions.
She warns that thousands of African children are at risk of being accused of being “witches” or “obsessed”.
” We have seen children being tortured, terrorized and killed. These pictures show why I’m struggling. Why I sold everything. Why I left Denmark in favor of a wild territory, ” she confirmed.
Together with her husband, David, Law began building a home for orphans in early January.
The couple even have a biological son, David Jr., who is nearly two years old. But they are also responsible for 35 boys and girls they have rescued from the streets under the same conditions as Hopes.
Because of her commitment and efforts, the Law is today considered a hero. Millions of people have become familiar with her cause and express interest in supporting what she does.
She continues to share updates about Hope’s new life via her Facebook page proving that the whole world was moved by this little girl.
Hope’s smile is now a symbol that shows how great things can be accomplished. When thousands of people come together on a cause.
Like her, many children need special attention before it is too late.
