Land of Hope rescued Saviour ten years ago. It was nearly at the beginning of the endeavour. The NGO had just started their work for the well-being of the children. The founder of the NGO, Anja Ringgren Loven, shared that when she saw him for the first time, Saviour was very traumatized. She shared that she sat before a scared little boy ten years ago.

With tears in his eyes, he told me his family had locked him up in a room for several weeks. Anja believes that the action of the community was due to their misconceptions and superstitions. The team of the NGO has been working diligently to protect the children from these fates. Anja shared that Saviour was so traumatized that he developed a high fever during my talk with him.
