(People's Daily Online)    05:21, April 02, 2016

A two-year-old Nigerian boy who was found emaciated and riddled with worms after his family left him for dead has made an incredible recovery.

The picture of the starving toddler being given a sip of water by an aid worker broke hearts around the world when it was first published in January.

The boy, now called Hope, was abandoned by his family because they thought he was a witch and was found in the streets by a Danish woman living in Africa, on January 31. And now the care worker released a series of photographs showing Hope's miraculous recovery in just eight short weeks, and says he "is really enjoying life now".
