When aid workers found Nigerian toddler “Hope” he had been wandering alone for eight months.
The emaciated two-year-old was riddled with worms and living on scraps after being abandoned by his family because they thought he was a witch.
He is one of thousands of children who are neglected or even killed in Nigeria after being suspected of witchcraft.
These photos, shared by Danish aid worker Anja Ringgren Loven, show her giving the child water and food, before wrapping him up and taking him to a local hospital.
Ms Loven is the founder of not-for-profit African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation, which runs a children’s centre to provide medical care, food and education for children wrongfully labelled as witches.
“Thousands of children are being accused of being witches and we’ve both seen torture of children, dead children and frightened children,” she wrote in Danish on her Facebook page.
