WE DO CHARITY
Ellie And Claire- charity officers 2017/18
Here at MedSoc, we're BIG on charity. Each year a charity is chosen to benefit from all the FUNdraising events that we put on throughout the year. Some of the biggest charity events in the MedSoc calendar include the Christmas Ball, Jailbreak and Med's Got Talent.
Our job is to make sure you guys have fun, all the while raising money for charity.
JAILBREAK 2017 was a fantastic experience for all who took part this year. Over £4000 was raised for MAP, with teams reaching Germany, Scotland and the South of France! Well done to all who participated and donated! Click here to see how they got on, or you can still donate here!
NORWICH HALF MARATHON 2017: almost 20 medics ran this year in grueling conditions on the hottest day of year! They have been training hard over the past several months to earn your donations! You can donate here!
MRAG WEEK: This year's MRAG (Medics raising and Giving) week is from 1st-5th May. There'll be lots of activities and opportunities to participate and raise money for Medical Aid for Palestinians. If you would like to take part in Med's Got Talent on Thursday 4th May, please get in touch at firstname.lastname@example.org
Previous MedSoc Charities: Medical Aid for Palestinians
Due to military checkpoints, Palestinians are stopped from accessing medical treatment from other parts of the country. A blockade on Gaza (an autonomous Palestinian territory) means that infrastructure is old and unreliable, which compromises medical services. Medical Aid for Palestinians provides essential services to the Palestinian population in Gaza, the West Bank, and Lebanese refugee camps. Their work is two-fold. Primarily, they train Palestinians in medical work, from primary care to counselling to emergency medicine; they also help co-ordinate the provision of medication and other resources to the areas most in need. http://www.map-uk.org/
