Now, new pictures shared by the aid worker who adopted him reveal the extraordinary transformation he has undergone in a matter of weeks.
An image of Danish philanthropist Anja Ringgren Lovén giving water to Hope was shared around the world at the end of January.
And the little boy’s story has since sparked an awareness campaign, led by the African Children’s Aid Education and Development Foundation (ACAEDF) which Ms Lovén founded with her husband David.
In an update on her Facebook page, Ms Lovén informed Hope’s supporters that the boy was due to undergo corrective surgery to treat hypospadias, “an inborn condition in which one has an incomplete developed urethra”.
