McMaster Friends of MSF is a student club that raises awareness and support for all of the work done by Médecins Sans Frontières/Doctors Without Borders (MSF).
MSF works towards sending medics, logisticians, and other specialists to help people who have been caught in disasters, emergencies, epidemics and wars. The organization has a huge impact as it works in more than 60 different countries!
In order to continue working independently, MSF raises the majority of their funds through private sources. These private donations are what help keep MSF going and what McMaster Friends of MSF helps contribute towards.
Rock Without Borders is an event that is being held by McMaster Friends of MSF. The event will feature a night of live music featuring bands from across Hamilton and the GTA! Tickets are only $8 for one or $20 for 3 and can be purchased at Compass on McMaster’s campus. Additionally, tickets can be purchased at the door for only $10.
Earlier this week, we spoke with Arshia Javidan, one of the event coordinators, to tell us a bit more about what we can expect and the planning process behind it all! Check out the full interview below:
