Hope is unrecognisable from the skeleton he was in January, having put on weight, and can be seen with a permanently cheeky smile as he revels being looked after by the caring team at the foundation who have nursed him back to health. Photos show him playing with other children, having his hair cut, giggling with staff and sitting at his own tiny table to have lunch with the bigger children at the foundation's centre.
When Ms Loven rescued the adorable little boy he was taken straight to hospital where he had to be given medication to remove worms from his stomach and daily blood transfusions to put more red blood cells into his body.

Posting the new photos on social media, Ms Loven wrote: "As you can see in 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. She said he has a condition called Hypospadias, which means his urethra is not completely developed, but thanks to the donations doctors will perform routine surgery on him soon to correct the birth defect.
Thousands of people have taken to social media to post photos of themselves holding placards with the word 'Hope' written on them for a campaign launched by Ms Loven. The "One Word To One World" campaign aims to send a message to Hope, and to children across the world with a "hope they will live a safe and meaningful life full of love, joy and happiness".
Ms Loven founded the charity with her husband, David Emmanuel Umem, three years ago in a bid to help children labelled as witches in Africa who are then neglected or even killed by the community members.
