Anja Ringgren Lovén grew up in Frederikshavn, Denmark where she was a store manager until 2011. After a trip to Africa where she saw extreme poverty and the heartbreaking fate of witch children, her traditional and safe life in Denmark stopped.
Anja made a choice. She wanted to dedicate her life and work to combat the conditions that children in Africa live under. She chose to fight, and still fights, for a cause that takes up almost all the room in her heart, which is why she has taken such a nontraditional path in life - something she never regretted.
In 2012, Anja founded her own aid agency, DINNødhjælp. An organization that has helped countless African children who were far from ever experiencing a worthy life.
