Crown Princess Mette-Marit Attends HIV Solidarity Service
At the Tøyen Church in Oslo this evening, Crown Princess Mette-Marit attended an inter-faith service to express solidarity with individuals affected by HIV/AIDS.
Hosted by the Church City Mission, the aim of the event was both to express solidarity and to celebrate the progresses made in HIV/AIDS treatment and prevention. The service was held on World AIDS Day, which has been marked on December 1 since 1988.
Crown Princess Mette-Marit, who has been involved with HIV/AIDS causes for many years, was one of many who lit candles during the service in honour of the approximately 5,000 Norwegians who live with HIV. Music and dance performances were part of the service, as well as stories from individuals with the disease.Filed under Norway
