'HOPE' A Message For The World

Umem David Emmanuel with Danish Woman floods the Internet with a Message of 'HOPE' for Children across the World.

Read below:

A woman from Denmark named Anja Ringgren Lovén has spent three years in Nigeria saving children from the worst cases of abuse. She is taking care of kids abandoned by their own very families for being witches.

Anja took the social media in Nigeria by surprise with the most bizzare pictures you can imagine when she and her team rescued a baby in Akwa Ibom state in Nigeria by January 2016 who had been abandoned by his family to survive on his own for more than three (3) months.

She renamed the Child 'Hope' and believed she will be able to affect lives through the story of this child. Hope is hale and healthy today as he has recovered fully and he is now under the care of Umem David Emmanuel and Anja Ringgren Lovén just like tens of other kide. It is indeed sickening and much has been left to be desired in Nigeria for the protection of Children in Nigeria, who suffer vagaries of abuses ranging from cultural, religious, and societal beliefs in Nigeria.

Mostly affected by these abuses in Nigeria is the girl child. As they are abducted in the North and forcefully married off and forced into the baby factory market in the South.

We are using this medium to call on the Government of Nigeria to do more to protect her Leaders of tomorrow.
