abuja - A Danish aid worker has the life of a 2-year-old Nigerian boy saved the months living on the streets. The parents of the boy were convinced that their son was bewitched and left him in the lurch.

The aid worker, Anja Ringgren Loven, the boy met on the street. He was emaciated and his belly was full of worms. Praise wrapped him in a towel and took him to the nearest hospital. That gave the child medicine and blood transfusions.

'Hope', as has Danish said the toddler is one of the countless victims of the distorted world of their parents. Tens of thousands of children across Africa are abandoned after being accused by parents of witchcraft or possession, according to figures from UNICEF. That story is confirmed by the social worker: In Nigeria, thousands of children are abandoned because their families think they are bewitched. We have here tormented, terrified and saw dead children. '

To pay the cost of medical treatment of Hope, Loven decided to bring the story out. Within two days the Danish more than a million dollars raised. Praise wants to use the money to build a new clinic.

Hope is the now well. Praise: He is now stable. Hope itself can eat and responds well to the medication he receives. He can sit and laugh at us. It is a small, strong boy. '
