UWE FoMSF at Bengali New Year Celebrations

Our fundraising stall at the community event

On 15th April 2018, we were honoured guests at the Muktomoncho Bristol Bengali New Year celebrations (Pohela Boishakh). We watched beautiful musical, poetry, and dance performances, and sampled tasty Bengali food. We spoke about the work MSF does and disseminated literature. We raised £46.13 which is enough to send a doctor to a crisis zone for a day; treat 6 children for malnutrition; or vaccinate 124 people against Hepatitis B, and 624 ibuprofen tablets. We would like to extend our heartfelt thanks to the Muktomoncho group and their guests for their kindness and generosity.
