On Friday 13th November the School of Clinical Sciences will host a charity lunch involving a raffle for staff and students (and visitors) in order to raise awareness and much needed funds for the leading international non-governmental organisation for medical aid “Medecines Sans Frontiers” (or Doctors Without Borders).
MSF created a world-wide network providing fast medical assistance, information and effective action to help hundreds of thousands of people affected by conflict, natural disaster and disease each year. In 1999, MSF received the Peace Nobel Prize in recognition for the continued efforts of its members to provide medical care, and for raising awareness of potential humanitarian disasters, and thereby insisting on political responsibility in conflict zones. To date, over 24,000 field staff including about 100 Australians and New Zealanders volunteer their time and skills on the field for humanity, despite the risks and danger this work brings along.
To support MSF means also to support the fundamental human right of medical care for all people! If you want to help as well, please join us for a lunch with delicious treats, drinks, raffle, and socialize while helping to raise money. All proceeds raised at the event will be donated to MSF!
The organisers are looking forward to see lots of you at the lunch!
