Raise funds for MSF through bake sales, Beats without Borders club night and most recently selling handmade crafts on @merch_for_msf
MSF is a charitable organisation that organises and supplies relief and aid work in areas suffering from humanitarian crises. These can include areas of armed conflicts, epidemica, famine, natural disasters and other major emergencies. Most recently they have been helping all over the world to try and tackle to COVID-19 pandemic.
As a society, we regularly organise events to raise funds and awareness and we need people to make these as big as possible. It doesn't matter what course you do at university, if you have any ideas and are interested, or just want to find out more about what MSF does, come along to one of our meetings. More details of these are on the website.
