As we said, we just have started February but with a lot of activities and new out coming; Red Cross youth in Norway has a national campaign from 2010 to 2012, it’s called IKKE ALLE BARN LEKER KRIG! or War is not a game for everyone/every child! , it focuses on the worlds forgotten disasters; the ones you rarely hear about. Currently, there are around 300.000 children in the world who have to fight the wars of the adults, and new ones are recruited every day. Norwegian Red Cross youth wants to make the problem known and at the same time contribute with concrete actions for children who have experienced horrific things .For 2012 , the main goals are spread awareness about this difficult situation in young people around all Norway likewise , collect money for two Child Advocacy and Rehabilitations Centers (CAR centers) in Liberia.
This year Tromsø Red Cross youth is going to be the host district of this campaign; thus , our first activity was a meeting in the university , where many people attended and were willing to help in all activities. After that, on 1st February we went to Kongsbakken school , there, we had a stand along with the local volunteers; it was a afternoon for spreading information,collect red hands that symbolizes that people are against theses kind activities with children , therefore, be awareness of this situation in young students and of course invite them to the main event or concert !
