Hope, who was branded a witch by his family and left to starve to death, was the best man at a wedding of one of the team members that rescued him 5 years ago in Eket, Akwa Ibom.

Recall that Hope, then an emaciated 2-year old, was rescued by Danish aid, Anja Ringgren Loven and her team on January 31st, 2016, after he was found wandering the streets for eight months!

Ms. Loven on Sunday, shared photos of a totally stylish and handsome Hope at the wedding of Land of Hope’s Education Officer, which took place during the weekend.

She wrote,

“In exactly 40 days today we are going to celebrate that Hope was rescued 5 years ago. To be exact, Hope was rescued on the 30th of January, 2016.

I cannot wait 40 days to share these pictures of Hope. He is simply too cute and handsome, Last week, Hope was best man at Don Udowan, our Education officer’s wedding and Hope just shined like a little star.

Looking back, it’s hard to believe that 5 years have already passed. I remember the day we rescued Hope as if it was just yesterday.

As most of you know, I have the name HOPE tattooed on my fingers. A tattoo I got many years ago ever before I travelled to Nigeria. Because for more than a decade now, it’s been my mission in life to: Help One Person Everyday (HOPE).

Many of you have been following our work since we rescued Hope and witnessed his amazing transformation. He is a SURVIVOR and one day he will be old enough to travel the world and tell his story.

Now, this is just amazing!
