VAKE start Berlevåg foto Ingerid JordalUnfortunately, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, we have no other option than to cancel VAKE 2020. We are very sorry for our teams, our volunteers, our partners and for the whole Varanger community.

We have been working hard the last weeks to make VAKE happen, coming up with alternative options in dialogue with local health authorities. But now the developement is out of our hands. VAKE must take responsibility globally, locally and for the safety of our teams. 

Globally - since we all must keep travel activities between countries to a minimum to prevent further spread of the virus.

Locally - since we must take action to prevent spread in Eastern Finnmark, which has no outbreak yet.

For the safety of our teams - All first aid crew in Berlevåg, Vadsø and Vardø has cancelled all planned activities to be in standby mode. We cannot safely arrange VAKE without them.

We hope that we will be able to arrange VAKE 2021 and be back with full force then! 

Take care, follow the advice from your authorities and wash your hands often!

We've sent an e-mail with more information to all teams.
