Boy branded as child witch gets amazing new life

A two-year-old boy left to die by his parents on suspicion of being a witch is now back to good health after health worker rescued him.

The boy who was branded a witch is now back to full health

Loven who is married to a Nigerian from Akwa Ibom State, a society where children are branded as witches and wizards and are subjected to untold hardship, picked up the boy who was malnourished and close to death, nurtured him back to life and today, the kid is full of life and has been adopted by Loven's African Children's Aid Education and Development Foundation (ACAEDF), a foundation that has been actively involved in rescuing vulnerable children dubbed child-witches, a phenomenon that has ravaged the South-South state for years.

After being treated in the hospital, the boy who was named Hope by Loven, has been discharged from the hospital and is bubbling with life.

Loven took to her Facebook page to post photos of Hope's amazing recovery with the following words:

"Finally finally finally!!!! Today Hope was discharged from the hospital !! The children have been so excited all day! My son David Jr. and I are now back in Denmark because tomorrow I will start my tour around the country. And oh how I wish I was there today.

Looking at these pictures of the children playing with Hope makes me totally speechless. Our dream came true! Can you imagine! This is what humanity is all about!

Children see magic because they look for it and now Hope has finally found his magic!

ACAEDF Childrens Home  - where there is love, there is life."
