In September 2010, the Danish newspaper Berlingske published a photo of an 18-month-old orphan from Nepal. The story brought about a flood of reactions from readers. But one reader, 36-year-old Cecilie M. Hansen, went one step further. Having seen the picture of the abandoned girl, she decided to travel to Nepal to find and try to save the toddler with the big head.
