With less than four months to go to World MS Day 2015, the new multilingual World MS Day site is now live.
The site includes up-to-date information on this year’s campaign, the latest resources for people to download, plus stories and photos from the last six years.
The resources include everything you need to organise your own World MS Day event for 2015. It also includes links to MS International Federation’s member organisations and others around the world, most of which will be taking part in World MS Day. Last year, World MS Day was celebrated in 77 countries.
The World MS Day theme for 2015 will be access, and the campaign will celebrate people and organisations that have made less difficult for people affected by MS.
Sophie Paterson, communications manager at MS International Federation, says: “We will be running the campaign across social media and sharing stories of strength and teamwork used to break down the barriers to living with MS.”
Within the next few weeks the website will also include a map to which people can add their own World MS Day events.
The campaign will be launched to the public in April, starting the build-up to World MS Day itself on 27 May.
The site and all its resources are available in Arabic, English, French, Portuguese and Spanish. It has been designed so it works equally well on mobile phones and tablets.
For World MS Day 2015 the World MS Day team is looking for stories about how people have broken down the barriers to access all over the world. If you want to share a good-news story from your country, get in touch with the team.
