Photos: Years after he was branded a witch, abandoned and stigmatized, little Hope represents his school in 100 meters race

Hope is blooming years after he was rescued by Danish aid worker Anja Ringgren Loven, after he was branded a witch by his family and left to starve to death in Akwa Ibom state.

The child had wandered the streets for eight months when Anja got a phone call and immediately led a rescue team to bring him to the Children’s Education and Development Foundation (ACAEDF) also known as ‘Land of Hope’ named after the boy.
Today, Friday, April 5, Hope is representing his school in the 100 meters race. Excited Anja shared his photos on Facebook and wrote:
“From being branded a witch, abandoned, rejected and stigmatized to representing his school in 100 meters race.
Today, Hope is taking part in his school’s Inter-House Sport Festival and of course he will be representing his team in the 100 meters race

See my little nugget he’s got swag
