Norwegians’ commitment to giving money and donations to Ukraine is decreasing – compared to when the war broke out.

“Unfortunately, we see that we are in a downward trend now,” the Norwegian Post’s press manager, Kenneth Pettersen, told P4 News.

In April, the Norwegian Post launched a service where one could send packages of emergency aid free of charge to Ukraine. So far, they have sent about 85 tons of packages filled with dry food and medicines that private Norwegian citizens and companies have sent.

The head of marketing at the Red Cross, Nina Larsen, confirms that donations are decreasing. 

“It has slowed down, but the war is not over,” Larsen told the channel.

Norwegians have given over NOK 800 million in support to aid organizations working in Ukraine.
