UCC friends of MSF Charity Swim

To mark Women’s Little Christmas, a dedicated group of students from the Friends of MSF UCC Society, braved the open water for some sea swimming.  They were raising funds for Médecins Sans Frontières, in aid of MSF’s projects in South Sudan and hoping to spread awareness about the suffering of the 170,000 people in refugee camps there. MSF is working with those who have fled the violence in Sudan, running field hospitals and providing clean drinking water and oral rehydration fluids.

If anyone would like to support MSF in their work, they can give a once-off contribution using this link : https://www.doctorswithoutborders.org/donate/onetime.cfm .  Money goes much further in South Sudan than it does in Ireland, so if just one person donated a euro, that would be a success.
