Boy Who Almost Starved to Death Now Thrives in School Just One Year Later

On January 31st, 2016 the orphan was rescued by Danish aid and child services worker Anja Ringgren Loven, who began to treat his condition.

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

“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.”

Here is aid worker Anja Ringgren Loven and a boy named Hope on the day they met. The then-2-year-old was on the brink of death.


About eight weeks after he was found, Hope hardly looked like the same boy. He now lives in the DINNødhjælp orphanage where he is loved and cared for.


He recently started school—about a year after being on the streets. What a difference love and compassion has made!
