World MS Day website goes live
The World MS Day global website has launched, allowing people affected by MS to submit their One day wishes.
The website is available in Arabic, English, French, Spanish, Portugese.
The site already features wishes from people affected by MS from around the world. People like Sofia from Russia, who says: "One day I will see humanity defeat MS"; and Ana from Brazil: "One day I’ll be able to go abroad without worrying if I have my
medication, because it will be accessible to everyone everywhere!"
From Wednesday 14 May, anyone affected by MS can add their wishes to Sofia's and Ana's, using their Facebook profile picture if they choose. On World MS Day itself (Wednesday 28 May), all the wishes submitted will be displayed on a global Wish Wall for people to view and share using social media.
World MS Day is the MS movement's
annual campaign to raise awareness of the condition, and to support and
connect the 2.3 million people living with it worldwide. The
2014 campaign is being led by MSIF’s Sophie Paterson and a working
group from MS societies across the world - from India to Ireland.
The theme is access – not just physical access, but also access to
drugs, information and treatment, and the same social and economic
opportunities as everyone else.
Share your wish on the World MS Day website.
