We have seen a lot of “Before & After Pics” photos, where people are seen as losing weight, having new haircuts, growing beards etc. But the pictures we are going to share in this article are something else. These are the best “Before and After” photos of the kid named Hope. Hope was left to die by his parents in Nigeria as he was accused of being a devil.
When a Danish NGO worker Anja Ringgren Loven saw him first, he was only a structure of skin and bones then. She was on a mission with her husband to rescue those children who are abandoned by their parents and are accused of being a devil or witch.
Loven was the one who gave this beautiful name to the little child – Hope. It is as beautiful as HOPE is. She couldn’t resist herself from saving Hope. She fed him water, gently wrapped him up in a blanket and took him to the nearest hospital for treatment. After two days, Loven shared the photo of her with Hope, she wanted to raise awareness about the facts those were plaguing the country. The photo went viral and caught attention throughout the world. Hope’s medical bills were very costly, Loven received $1 million in donations to pay the medical bills. Today, after one year, his health is in good spirit and it is a lovely surprise for everyone who cared for him. He is living with the other 35 children in an orphanage run by Loven and her husband. He goes to school; he laughs; he eats; he lives his life.
The accusation of witchcraft is very common in Nigeria. Loven and her husband purchased a new land with the remaining donation money and named it – Land of Hope. This will be a new beautiful home for kids like Hope.
We salute Loven, she is the lady who has looked after a deprived child and trying to give him meaningful life. This kid was left to die by his own parents. Loven has not given birth to this child, but yes, she has done more than that. We adore her, this is the beauty of a woman’s feeling and care.
