Remember The Boy Who Nearly Died of Hunger? See How He Looks Today! (Photos)

Anja Ringgren Loven,a social worker from Denmark was helping kids in Nigeria when she noticed this little, skinny boy and published a few heart-breaking photos of this little guy on her Facebook profile. The photos touched the hearts of numerous people all over the world.

This two years old boy was abandoned by his parents and was left on the street to die. It was assumed that his parents thought that he was a witch. When the social worker, Anja, found him, he was in awful condition.

The boy was wandering around the street for whole 8 months and until Anja found him and took him under her wing. The woman provided him with proper medical care and gave him a name – Hope.


Recent photos show that the love and care for the boy have given amazing results. His condition significantly improved even though at first he looked like he was on the point to die.

Hope nowlooks like a healthy and happy boy. He has gained several pounds which can be noticed on the most recent photos.

Along with the photo, Anja wrote:

“The day I carried this sweet little boy in my arms for the very first time I was so sure he would not survive. Every breath he took was a struggle and I did not want him to die without a name, without dignity, so I named him Hope. Hope to me is a special name. Not only the meaning of Hope, but what it stands for. Many years ago I got the name HOPE tattooed on my fingers because to me it means: Help One Person Every day.”
