TV-aksjonen is NRK’s, the Norwegian Broadcasting Corporation’s, annual telethon to raise funds for various charity purposes. This year, funds are being raised for Red Cross and its humanitarian aid to people in war and conflict areas. The money will go to Red Cross’s work in nine countries: Syria, Lebanon, South Sudan, Afghanistan, Myanmar, Somalia, El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras.
On Wednesday, 5 October, Cecilie Hellestveit and Anne Guro Dimmen will be among the panelists in a discussion organized by Oslo Red Cross. Hellestveit and Dimmen will shed light on the situation in Syria, and El Salvador, Guatemala and Honduras respectively. A key purpose of the event is to spread knowledge and generate further interest for this year’s TV-aksjon.
The event is on Wednesday 5 October at 18.00-20.00 at Kulturhuset in Oslo.
