Here are answers to some of the questions we often hear – click on the question to see the answer.

Can I become a volunteer at DINNoedhjaelp and travel to Nigeria?

DINNoedhjaelp is currently working in Nigeria which is one of the world´s most dangerous countries. DINNoedhjaelp is working in a state called Akwa Ibom.

Due to the high-risk area where we run DINNoedhjaelp Children Center it´s not possible to accept volunteers. We cannot guarantee anyone’s safety, which is why we operate alone. We advise everyone to read the travel instruction for Nigeria on the website of the Foreign Ministry of your home country.  Read more about the English travel instructions here.

Can we adopt a child?

DINNoedhjaelp does not adopt the children who have been saved, primarily because adoption is illegal in Nigeria. If someone tries to adopt a child, they are accused of child trafficking and may be punished with imprisonment for 15 years. The license to run the orphanage would be deprived and the orphanage would close.

Because the children have already been exposed to major traumatic experiences, removing them from the country and the culture they know will cause the child further trauma. In addition, many of our children still have contact with their biological parents, this is important for the children as they still love their family. In addition, it is also an important factor in our information work that they attend a “home visit” when we consider it’s safe for the child. The residents of the village can see that the child is healthy and well-functioning, and thus this can help conclude that the child is not a witch.

I would like to work as a volunteer at DINNoedhjaelp in Denmark. Can I do it?

DINNoedhjaelp needs a lot of support and we are very pleased that so many want to help us. DINNoedhjaelp has developed a communication strategy to create a clear direction in the way we visualize our organization. Therefore, it is important that you as a volunteer at DINNoedhjaelp know our strategy as there must be a targeted connection between what we (DINNoedhjaelp) say and what we do.
