African aid for Norwegians in winter – “It’s kind of just as bad as poverty”

A new charity in Africa is seeking to help out Norwegians suffering from, well, winter.

A spokesman for the new charity Radi-Aid is collecting radiators to send to the Scandinavian country because: “A lot of people aren’t aware of what’s going on there right now … It’s kind of just as bad as poverty if you ask me.”

I needed a laugh.
