I’m deeply sorry to report that the planned collection for the MSF Syria Refugee Fund has been cancelled. I have also cancelled the original post so people who subsequently click the link won’t get incorrect information.
I didn’t get the Garda certificate for on-street collection on time and while I would have been happy to go ahead given the desperation of the refugee situation I wouldn’t have been happy putting anyone else on the street without everything in order.
I spent most of my day making calls, drumming up support on social media, collecting t-shirts and collection boxes etc. I’m sorry we couldn’t do it today and thanks so much for all the support.
Please use the goodwill you demonstrated toward our collection by donating here: http://www.msf.ie/donate
