You might remember Hope from a story we covered about a month ago. The two-year-old Nigerian boy was abandoned by his family, who suspected that he was a witch, and wandered the streets alone for eight months.

On January 31st, Hope was rescued by Danish aid worker Anja Ringgren Loven, who began to treat his condition.

Just eight weeks later, Hope has undergone a miraculous recovery.

“As you can see on the pictures, Hope is really enjoying his life now having 35 new brothers and sisters who ALL take such good care of him, play with him, study with him, and make sure he is safe and is getting a lot of love.”
