Our next pub evening on Tuesday 16 February will be devoted to issues of broader concern than those just affecting our own neighbourhood. We are very pleased to have a speaker from Medecins Sans Frontieres, Stephen Legg, to tell us about his organisation and its role in assisting in trouble spots around the world.
As many of you will know Medecins Sans Frontieres (MSF) is an international, independent, medical humanitarian organisation which exists to save lives by providing vital medical and humanitarian aid where it is needed the most. Since its founding in 1971 MSF has cared for millions of people caught in crisis, irrespective of race, religion, gender or political affiliation. Stephen will provide an introduction to MSF and touch on key topics including: Syria and the refugee crisis, medical aid under fire and MSF’s response to the Ebola epidemic.
As usual we will meet in the Upstairs Theatre Bar of the Victoria Pub, Strathearn Place W2 from 6.30 – 8.30pm. Please feel free to invite any neighbours or friends who you think would be interested in joining our association.
