The sentence below is the one I've written myself in a certain context.
I'm not sure if the underlined part is correctly constructed. Could anyone
tell me if there are any mistakes?

And it is worthy of notice that there were not many respondents who
were either indifferent to or ignorant of this problem.

    English but my first language was German
    It's OK as is, but you can also surround or ignorant of with commas.

    It's a judgement call---the aim is to help your readers understand you. The longer the interpolated phrase is, the more helpful the commas are.
