Countdown to the 50th Consecutive Donation: No. 27 – Norway 11/08/2009

The recipient of the Norway presentation was to the Benjamin Hermansen Fund in Oslo. It’s a childrens based charity founded to commemorate the memory of Benjamin Hermansen (May 29, 1985 – January 26, 2001) a Norwegian-born Ghanaian boy whose father was born in Ghana, his mother was Norwegian. He was stabbed to death at Holmlia in Oslo, Norway, just before midnight on January 26, 2001 by Neo-Nazis.  To commemorate his memory, a foundation was set up to raise funds for Children’s charities in Norway with a preferable anti race background which his mother to this day plays an active part in.

The presentation happened on the night before the international match at the Skeid ground in Oslo during the half time period of the Norwegian Second division match between Skeid Oslo and Sarpsborg 08.  With the assistance of John Lindsey from the British Embassy and  Rich Ross who was in contact with FC Skeid, the TASA group was greeted with photographers and a good crowd at the game.  Full Story Here…
