Danish Aid worker, Anja Ringgren Loven rescued the little boy, Hope, who was left for dead after being branded a witch in Uyo, Akwa Ibom State. Today, she was presented with the Danish Medal of Honour in Denmark for her “brave, selfless and extraordinary effort to save the vulnerable children in Nigeria.
“The motivation for the medal: “Anja, you make a brave, selfless and extraordinary effort to save the vulnerable children in Nigeria. Few people know how dangerous a mission it is – but everyone is aware of what it means for the vulnerable children who without help will end up lonely on the streets.”
“I will bring this medal of honor to Nigeria and give it to David. Without him I would not be where I am today. He is not only the father of my son. He is my biggest inspiration and my hero! He is the most amazing man and this medal is undisputed because of his extraordinary efforts.”
