9jaflave Soliloquy - The Power Of Compassion (2)

Everyone will remember this image showing Danish aid worker Anja Ringgren Loven, giving water to a little boy who had been wandering the streets for 8 months in Akwa Ibom, Nigeira.

The 2 year old boy was abandoned by his parents who thought he was a witch. He was found sick with worms and malnutrition. Anja named him Hope and today that same child is doing so well.

Anja is the founder of the African Children's Aid Education and Development Foundation (ACAEDF)  and has dedicated her time and resources to helping abandoned children accused of witchcraft in Nigeria. Yesterday she was named by OOOM Magazine as the  world's most inspiring person 2016 alongside President Barack Obama, Pope Francis and others. She shared the good news on her facebook page.

We may be many worlds apart, but the power of compassion can easily flow from one heart to another.

We may be of a different colour and race, yet the power of compassion can create bonds that will last foerever.

We may be lost and in search of many answers, but the power of compassion can create pathways to destiny.

Many are broken and wounded while others are dying. Others have been called what they are not, as they fight to find their place in a lonely world. Now is the time to turn on the power of compassion.

It only takes a word, a gift, a hug, a smile, a donation, a prayer and your influence to light up someone's world. One little act of kindness can change a life forever. Let us all turn on the power of compassion.
