He was left on his own and even after being taken under care, his chances of survival were very less.

It was very tough to bring back his health since he had been wandering on the streets for more than eight months without proper food and clothes.

Anja speaks about him: "The day I carried this sweet little boy in my arms for the very first time, I was so sure he would not survive. Every breath he took was a struggle and I did not want him to die without a name, without dignity, so I named him Hope. Hope to me is a special name. Not only the meaning of Hope but what it stands for. Many years ago I got the name HOPE tattooed on my fingers because to me it means: Help One Person Everyday."
