A Facebook user, Mandeep Singh Insan Gajuwala with 76k followers has shared a picture, along with a caption, and has claimed that the picture is from Norway in Europe. The caption also describes a unique tradition of Norwegian citizens of serving food in restaurants.
The Facebook caption read:यूरोप का एक देश है नार्वे ….वहां कभी जाईयेगा तो यह सीन आम तौर पर पाईयेगा..एक रेस्तरां है ..उसके कैश काउंटर पर एक महिला आती है और कहती है -“5 Coffee, 1 Suspension”..फिर वह पांच कॉफी के पैसे देती है और चार कप कॉफी ले जाती है …थोड़ी देर बाद ….एक और आदमी आता है ,कहता है- “4 Lnch , 2 Suspension” ! वह चार Lunch का भुगतान करता है और दो Lunch packets ले जाता है…फिर एक और आता है …आर्डर देता है – “10 Coffee , 6 Suspension” !! वह दस के लिए भुगतान करता है, चार कॉफी ले जाता है…थोड़ी देर बाद….एक बूढ़ा आदमी जर्जर कपड़ों में काउंटर पर आकर पूछता है- “Any Suspended Coffee ??” काउंटर-गर्ल मौजूद कहती है- “Yes !!”और एक कप गर्म कॉफी उसको दे देती है …कुछ देर बाद वैसे ही एक और दाढ़ी वाला आदमी अंदर आता है,पूछता है-“Any Suspended Lunch ??”तो काउंटर पर मौजूद व्यक्ति गर्म खाने का एक पार्सल और पानी की एक बोतल उसको दे देता है …और यह क्रम …एक ग्रुप द्वारा अधिक पेमेंट करने का और दूसरे ग्रुप द्वारा बिना पेमेंट खान-पान ले जाने का दिन भर चलता रहता है ….यानि …अपनी “पहचान” न कराते हुए और किसी के चेहरे को “जाने बिना” भी अज्ञात गरीब जरूरतमंद की मदद करना…यह है नार्वे नागरिकों की परंपरा !!!…और एक अपना देश है जहाँ ‘एक दर्जन’ लोग किसी मरीज को ‘एक केला’ देते हुए बड़ी बेशर्मी से ऐसे फ़ोटो खिंचवाते हैं, जैसे दुनिया के सबसे बड़े दानवीर वही हैं | पेज को फोलो करें – Mandeep Singh Insan Gajuwala”

(English Translation, “A country in Europe is Norway….If you ever go there, this scene will usually be found..There is a restaurant..A woman comes on her cash counter and says -“5 Coffee, 1 suspension”.. then she gives five coffee money and takes four cups of coffee…After a while….Another man comes, says-“4 Lunch, 2 suspension”! He pays four lunchAnd two lunch takes the perceptions…Another comes again… orders – “10 coffee, 6 suspension”!! He pays for ten,Take four coffees…After a while….An old man asks at the counter in shabby clothes -“Any Suspended Coffee ??” The Counter-girl says-” yes!!” and a cup of hot coffee gives it to her…After a while, the same person in the same way comes inside, asks – “Any Suspended Lunch ??” So the person at the counter is a parcel of hot eating and A Bottle of water gives it to him…And this order… more payment by a group.It keeps on going through the other group to take without payment khan-Pan….Means… not doing your ” identity ” and helping someone’s face ” without knowing ” the unknown poor needy…This is the tradition of Norwegian citizens!!!… and there is a country where ‘a dozen’ people are very shamelessly taking photos of a patient, as if they are the biggest also of the world.

NewsMobile fact-checked the above post and found it to be misleading.
With the help of Google Reverse Image Search, we found this image on Shutterstock.com.
The caption under the picture claims it to be from Berehove, Ukraine, dated December 14, 2017, in which a poor old man receives a hot lunch at a public kitchen for poor and homeless people.

Further when we put the keywords ‘Berehove’ ‘Ukraine’ ‘public kitchen’ ‘poor and homeless people’ we found similar images that prove that this picture is from Ukraine.

On digging further, we google searched by putting keywords such as ‘suspension coffee’ ‘Norway’ and we got to know that when one participates in the Suspended Coffee program for humanity, one can buy things for someone less fortunate.

We searched on the official website of suspended coffee and found that there are 14 cafes linked to this movement in Norway and none of them are similar to the photo that is posted on the Facebook page above.

In conclusion, the above fact-check proves that the picture in the Facebook post is not from Norway and the Facebook caption is not related to the picture at all.
