Popular Danish aid worker, Anja Ringgren Lovén has taken to Facebook to share new photos of two young boys she rescued 5 years ago in Akwa Ibom.

She disclosed that she and her husband, David Umem, rescued them after they were beaten and abandoned over witchcraft allegations.

Loven, in a Facebook post on Thursday, December 7, 2023, said the minors, Godspower and Gideon, were sleeping inside bushes at the time of their rescue.  
 
“David Emmanuel Umem and I were not prepared the day we rescued Godspower and Gideon. We were in a local village for a meeting and suddenly two boys were brought to us, accused of being witches,” she wrote.
     
“Godspower and Gideon were very dirty and scared. They slept inside bushes and had been beaten. It was December 2018 and David and I took the boys to Land of Hope or else they would not be alive for very long. It’s been 5 years of incredible development. Godspower and Gideon are both the most modest, sweetest and intelligent young boys today. Godspower is the best student in his class.
     
“For 5 years in a row he has taken first position as the nr.1 student with highest scores. Supporting Land of Hope really save lives. V A loving heart is the truest wisdom.”
