A starving “which child” hit headlines when a charity worker found him on the streets near-death, after he was left by his own parents.
2-year-old boy, later known as Hope, was discovered by Danish native Anja Ringgren Loven in January 2016.
On the first picture, she was pictured holding up a bottle of water to the severely gaunt Nigerian boy, and now the boy has been pictured starting school after he made a miraculous recovery, underwent numerous blood transfusions to get him back on track and gained lots of vital weight.
Ms Loven wrote in a Facebook post: “On the 30th of January 2016 I went on a rescue mission with David Emmanuel Umem, Nsidibe Orok and our Nigerian team.
“A rescue mission that went viral, and today it’s exactly one year ago that the world came to know a young little boy called Hope.
“This week Hope will start school.”
In order to help children who had been neglected on the harsh streets, Loven founded African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation three years ago.
“Thousands of children are being accused of being witches and we’ve both seen torture of children, dead children and frightened children,” she wrote on Facebook.
“With all the money, we can, besides giving Hope the very best treatment, now also build a doctor clinic on the new land and save many more children out of torture.”
