It’s said that the twenty-first century is the century of children. The whole interest in and functioning of the world revolves around the youngest. Not in all countries however. In underdeveloped countries, children are still not appreciated. Their health and even life is constantly threatened. Unfortunately, the poverty in which they are born has a great influence on the high death rate among children.
Luckily, there are people for whom the fate of the children is very important and will not hesitate to reach out with a helping hand.
Anja Ringgren Loven is a Dane who works in Nigeria as a volunteer. Traveling through the streets of the city she saw a small boy who was starved, naked and without any care.
As it turned out, the parents abandoned the two year old, because of a superstition! They deemed him a sorcerer.
The boy wandered through streets for eight months – it’s a miracle that he survived so long without care.
