Boy branded a witch, left to die 5 years ago, becomes best man at wedding

In 2016, the boy was rescued by Danish aid, Anja Ringgren Loven and her team after he was left to die by his family who branded him a witch.

Ms Loven on Sunday, shared photos of a stylish and handsome Hope at the wedding of Land of Hope’s Education Officer, which took place last weekend.

She wrote;

“In exactly 40 days today we are going to celebrate that Hope was rescued 5 years ago. To be exact, Hope was rescued on the 30 of January 2016.

I cannot wait 40 days to share these pictures of Hope. He is simply to cute and handsome. Last week Hope was best man at Don Udowan, our Education officer’s wedding and Hope just shined like a little star.

Looking back, it’s hard to believe that 5 years have already passed. I remember the day we rescued Hope as if it was yesterday.

As most of you know I have the name HOPE tattooed on my fingers. A tattoo I got many years ago even long before I ever travelled to Nigeria. Because for more than a decade now it’s been my mission in life to: Help One Person Everyday: HOPE

Many of you have been following our work since we rescued Hope and witnessed his amazing transformation. He is a SURVIVOR and one day he will be old enough to travel the world and tell his story.

We owe everything to you, our followers, sponsors, supporters and members.
