For our Christmas version of International Forum Nov. 21st we have invited a very special organization – A Drop in the Ocean. A Drop in the Ocean is a Norwegian NGO that aims to provide immediate and direct aid to refugees arriving in Europe, by coordinating volunteers and by collecting necessary equipment and financial support. A Drop in the Ocean was founded in September 2015 and since then, they have coordinated around 6500 volunteers to Greece, where aid is needed the most.
The presentation will be given by founder and Secretary General Mrs. Trude Jacobsen, awarded “the bravest woman of the year 2018”. Trude Jacobsen, a mother of five, reacted spontaneously when she saw the flow of boat refugees to Greece in 2015. She took a leave of absence from work and traveled to Greece to help. What started as a small Facebook group has now evolved into an organization with thousands of volunteers from all over the world.
International Forum is followed by our traditional, international Christmas dinner.
OCC Members, Embassies, Bilateral CC and expat members: NOK 490,- / Others NOK 690,-.
We look forward to sharing this special evening with you!
