This photo of an African boy being fed by a volunteer has gone viral worldwide when Anja Ringgern Loven posted it on her page.
The woman has been volunteering for many years and often visits countries where volunteer help is needed.
In this picture, Anja left a note in which she spoke about the fate of the boy. His own parents threw him out into the street, as they suspected him of witchcraft.
At that time, a group of swindlers lived in the community, who persuaded many parents that their children were sorcerers and offered to “cure” the baby for a large sum.
But the family of this boy decided to just throw him away…
For 8 months, the child lived on the street and ate what he found on the streets.
But he was lucky to meet Anja, who took the boy with her to Denmark and settled in her own shelter, where the same “foundlings” from Nigeria already lived.
Initially, the boy was far behind in development from his peers and could not gain the necessary weight.
But over time, he began to get better.
And now he has many friends at the new school, he is a good student and hopes that in the future he will also help poor children.
