Young boy looking healthy 2 years after he was branded a witch.

Danish aid worker, Anja Loven Ringgren  has taken to her facebook to share before and after photos of a young boy they rescued in Akwa Ibom two years ago after being branded a witch, beaten and abandoned on the street by his family.

This morning facebook reminded me about what happened exactly 2 years ago today.

On the 13 of February 2017 Nsidibe Orok, Director of Child Development of ACAEDF and I went on a rescue mission alone.

A boy was abandoned and left alone on the street.
We found the boy with scars all over his body. He was accused of being a witch. He was brutally beaten.
This was the day Elijah was rescued, one of David Jr.’s best friends today.
