Photo: Love without boundaries: Maria and Alexander have been together for one and a half years. Maria is currently working in Tanzania as a doctor, while Alexander is busy with exams and Eurovision, working in Baku.
Misses Maria every day
Alexander Rybak is in Azerbaijan and feels the Grand Prix circus. But his thoughts go to his girlfriend – who is a doctor in Africa.
Alexander Rybaks (26) doctor- girlfriend Maria Slyngstad (26) recently moved to Tanzania to work in the hospital for Haydom Friends Foundation. There are many who need help.
– “The day before Maria was leaving I had to run and buy medical equipment for her, because she was told that they had nothing in the hospital. That made me surprised and very worried for Maria”, Alexander says to Se og Hør.
