On Sunday, 21 November at 7pm, the annual national fundraiser of the Faroe Islands Red Cross will be broadcast live on the open tv channel, Rás1. The fundraiser is an opportunity for individuals and companies to raise funds for the Red Cross' aim to prevent and alleviate human suffering, both in the Faroe Islands and across the globe. On the program will be reports, touching conversations and live musical performances from Greta, Týr, Lea Kampman and Robert McBernie. The show will be in Faroese.
