Danish aid worker who rescued starving Nigerian baby builds medical clinic and hostel in Akwa Ibom

A Danish aid worker who once rescued a boy accused of witchcraft, is now building a  large child centre in Nigeria.

Anja Ringgren Lovén who is in a relationship with a Nigerian, with whom she has a son, became popular a couple months ago, after she rescued, rehabilitated and adopted a small boy abandoned by his family in Akwa Ibom State, for being a wizard. She later named the child Hope.

 She shared the pictures of the ongoing building project on her Facebook page, with the caption:

"Land of Hope is the name of our new land which is also written above our main gate. The wall all around our big land has already been build and razor wire all around has been placed on the top of the wall.

"We are now in the process of building 6 of our main buildings: Girls hostel, boys hostel, kitchen both indoor and outdoor, office/library building, security/generator house and volunteers house.Hopefully we will finish in a few months. .

"It's rainy season so the rain is giving us some challenges but the workers are really working fast and our engineer is doing a great job! We are also going to build a Parliamentary Hall which will serve as an "Event Center". We will also build an ICT- Center. .

"And finally, we will. as most of you also know, build a Medical Health Clinic which we have already named "Hope's Clinic" - donated by Denmark. "Land of Hope" will be the future land for the vulnerable children in Nigeria. A land of hope for a brighter future."
