Your Relief.

Anja is part of a Danish organization called  DINNødhjælp (‘your relief’). The organization rescues children who are labeled as witches and therefore abandoned by their parents.

These kids are tortured, neglected and killed by their parents. The NGO rescues these kids and shelters them. So, Anja took him and named him Hope.

Hope was hospitalized and taken care. He was treated for malnutrition and stomach worms. Anja stayed really close to him during the whole process.

Hope was discharged from the hospital and began gaining weight in March, last year. Just 8 months after his rescue, Hope completely regained his energy.

Just look at that lovely face!

Kids are priorities.

Now he had made a full recovery and is almost unrecognizable. He lives in an orphanage where he shares with children who were cast away by their parents.

Anja and her team are running the orphanage. Anja talked about her labor and how important are children. “All children have rights and those rights must be protected, always” she stated on Facebook.
