hope boy nigeria.jpgA 2 y.o. Nigerian boy who was found emaciated and riddledhope book.jpg with worms after his family left him for dead has made an incredible recovery. A picture of the starving toddler being given a sip of water by an aid worker broke hearts around the world when it was published in January 2016. The boy, now called Hope, was abandoned by his family because they thought he was a witch and was found in the streets by Anja Ringgren Loven, a Danish woman living in Africa, on January 31.

And now Ms Loven has shared a series of photographs showing Hope’s miraculous recovery in just eight short weeks, and says he ‘is really enjoying life now’. Back in January, Ms Loven found the boy after he spent eight months fending for himself and living off scraps. She bent down and gently began feeding him and giving him water from a bottle. She then wrapped up the disorientated toddler in a blanket and took him to the nearest hospital for treatment. When Hope reached the hospital, he was given medication to remove the worms from his stomach and daily blood transfusions to incorporate more red blood cells into his body, Ms Loven said. And two days after the aid worker asked for the community’s help with Hope’s costly medical bills, she received $1million in donations from around the world. Just eight weeks later, Hope is unrecognisable. He has gained weight and has been pictured smiling and playing with other children.
