In a Red Cross survey, one in three Norwegians says that they are worried that the elderly in their family or circle of friends are lonely. The youngest are most worried.
The survey was conducted by Opinion. On the occasion of Volunteer Day on Sunday, the Red Cross asks people to embrace the spirit of hard work to fight loneliness.
“Never before has there been a greater need to care about others,” Thor Inge Sveinsvoll, the head of the Norwegian Red Cross, stated.
“A long-term pandemic has been difficult for all of us, and mostly for those who faced challenges before,” Sveinsvoll said.
