Starving child who was left to die by his parents starts school one year on
A starving child who was left for dead by his parents who thought he was a witch has been pictured full of joy as he sets off for his first day at school.
Pictures of a starving child sipping water from a rescue worker’s bottle hit the headlines last year.
People from all over the world donated more than $1million (£801,100) to help the child after Anja Ringgren Loven, a Danish rescue worker, found him to the streets.
Hope was rushed to the hospital to receive medication to remove the worms from his stomach and have daily blood transfusions.
Having made a miraculous recovery, the now healthy-looking youngster set off to embark on his education in a strapping red outfit.
Heartwarming pictures shared by Anja, the founder of African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation, show the happy boy dressed in his red school uniform ahead of his big start.
In a Facebook post, she wrote: ‘On the 30th of January 2016 I went on a rescue mission with David Emmanuel Umem, Nsidibe Orok and our Nigerian team.
Young girls’ phone numbers are being sold for 50p in India‘A rescue mission that went viral, and today it’s exactly one year ago the world came to know a young little boy called Hope.
‘This week Hope will start school.’
Hope was discovered walking along the streets by Anja in January 2015.
He had been abandoned by his family near Uyo, southern Nigeria.
