TV-aksjonen – a Norwegian phenomenon
The NRK Telethon is the largest information campaign and fundraising event in Norway.
This is what the money raised will fund
This year’s telethon will help children affected by war and conflict. Together, we can provide more than 100,000 children with the opportunity to play, learn and live in peace.
Every sixth child in the world grows up in war and conflict and never before have there been as many displaced children as now.
Save the Children is present where needed and helps ensure that children and their caregivers receive the help they need. The real heroes are the volunteers and the fieldworkers in the local community. They help give children a safer childhood.
The money we raise will therefore fund initiatives to make families, schools and local communities safer for children.
Together, we will:
- Help children deal with painful experiences, as well as providing healthcare and appropriate nutrition
- Reunite children and families that have been separated
- Ensure safe journeys to and from school and safe classrooms where children can learn
- Provide safe spaces for children in the local environment for play and laughter
The money raised will be distributed between projects in Ukraine, Syria, Bangladesh, South Sudan, the Democratic Republic of the Congo and Norway. In Norway, we will help children who have fled from war and conflict.
