Report has it that the boy, who has been named Hope was left for dead on the streets by his family, who thinks he is a witch.
Hope survivied on the streets for eight months, feeding on scraps thrown at him by passers by.
Fortunately, on January 31, Hope was rescued by a Danish humanitarian aid-worker, Miss Anja Ringgren Loven, who discovered him Unclad, emaciated, and wandering the streets with his body riddled with worms.
Miss Anja, who has a Nigerian partner with whom she has a son, took Hope to the hospital where he was given a thorough bath. Thereafter Hope was treated of the worms and given blood transfusion to replenish his obviously depleted red blood cells.
Already, Miss Anja who runs a children orphanage, has received donations to the tune of $1 million from donors from around the world after asking the community for fund to settle Hope’s medical bills.
She’s hoping to build a hospital for neglected children like Hope besides giving Hope the best of treatment.
