Norwegian Christians raised more than 76,000 baht at a charity concert to help an HIV/AIDS group buy a new truck.

Jan Olav Johannessen, senior pastor at the Pattaya Seamen’s Church, kicked off the Nov. 18 concert for the Glory Hut Foundation by introducing the musical duo Passover, comprised of two disabled residents of the Ban Jing Jai orphanage. They entertained on guitars donated to them a year ago by Frank Hagen and Norwegian friends.

Glory Hut is a small foundation that helps HIV/AIDS patients. It currently lacks means to transport patients to and from the hospital. The Seaman’s Church chipped in to help raise 300,000 baht needed to buy a truck.
