8. Svein Harberg


We manage to connect with Svein Harberg, Vice President of the Parliament, who also has several years of experience as the Mayor of Grimstad, where Leander is about to start at the junior high school.
We engage in a lengthy and insightful conversation with Harberg. Here, they both agree that there should be a maximum number of weeks between applying for support and receiving a response. Waiting a year for a child of school age is far too long, and none of us can afford to wait for this. These children need help promptly.
Svein Harberg generously provides us with Henrik Aasheim’s private mobile number, a move that Leander appreciates, although he’s still not entirely convinced that he is being heard.
