These crooks insinuate that an evil spirit has possessed the child. Hope is a victim of these scammers. The poor boy then wandered the streets alone, finding only worms for food.

The most incredible thing about this story is that he still managed to survive. And this despite the lack of food. How a child of this age was able to survive on the streets without any help?

Luckily, Anja Ringgren and her companions came in time to save him. In fact, they have heard of his story. So they rushed to pull him misery.

Anja Ringgren knew that such a small child could not bear such a life. When they found him, Hope was in critical condition. He could barely stand with his two legs.
