Mr Lorentzen who has been an active member of our Board of Overseers, died when his heart stopped during a run in Bergen Wednesday.
The 62 year-old musician, was known to many Norwegians as a member of the Norwegian duo Knutsen & Ludvigsen, but he invested a lot of his time and energy to help children. He was a UNICEF ambassador, but he also collaborated with Magne Raundalen and Marianne Straume at the Center for Crisis Psychology in Bergen to help traumatised refugee children.
“He was a great man, an eminent musician, composer and author, but most of all he was a true child’s advocate,” says Atle Dyregrov.
