However, she wrote, “Hope is getting so much better. Already gaining a lot of weight and looking so much more healthy. Now we only need him to talk. But that will come naturally when he is out of the hospital and starting his life among all our children. Children become stronger.



    • What r u saying? The boys parent believed he was a witch and abandoned him to die. This humanitarian was in akwa ibom and saw the state of the boy… She took him in, sent him to the hospital and is currently caring for him and you call her a fake prophet! The boy would have been dead had it not been for her kindness!
