In the wake of devastating floods near the Sudanese capital Khartoum, the government has announced a 3-month state of emergency and reported hundreds of deaths and massive destruction across the city. Yet, the internet found a glimpse of hope in photos of a young man floating on top of a wooden board he has loaded with puppies.

Despite having no details on the name of the celebrated young hero or even the date of the photos, social media users expressing sympathy with the Sudanese calamity widely shared the photos showing the man they described as a hero; as he was rescuing puppies that would have otherwise been killed due to the intense flooding.

Translation: "Photos from flooding Sudan showing a man rescuing puppies despite the disaster have gone viral."

Over the last week, heavy rains in Sudan resulted in rising water levels of the Blue Nile which resulted in massive flooding, one that has been announced "the worst in a 100 years" in the country.

Additionally, videos of Sudanese individuals singing, while boating across flooding streets of the capital city, went viral as people saluted the resilience of Sudanese people, who have been trying to show strength despite the national disaster.
