Vann – Alle Må Ha Vann!

Water – everyone must have water! That’s the theme song for Norway’s ‘TV Action’ in 2014. TV Action is a national TV based fund raising event (a bit like Comic Relief in the UK), and this year the charity to benefit is Kirkens Nødhjelp (The church’s emergency help) and specifically aiming to provide clean water in Africa, Afghanistan and Haiti. Their slogan is Vann Forandrer Alt (water changes everything).

Our local prost (rural dean) came up with the idea of a “water concert”, inviting choirs for the local area to sing a couple of songs each on the theme of water and finishing with everyone singing the theme song. After ward there was a mini international cafe. Everyone went away happy and well fed. The concert raised about 20000 NOK (2000 pounds / $2800).

Here are some pictures taken by one of our young people (Sarah and I were busy with technical stuff, and running the kitchen):
