On January 30, his rescuer, Loven took to her Facebook handle to post the new pictures of the boy on his way to school as she feeds him water and replicating the initial picture of how she rescued him. She posted it with the caption:

“On the 30 of January 2016, I went on a rescue mission with David Emmanuel Umem, Nsidible Orok and our Nigerian team. A rescue mission that went viral and today it’s exactly 1 year ago the world came to know a young little boy called Hope. This week Hope will start school.”

The boy looks healthy and unrecognisable after gaining weight
Hope smiles and looks happy now
