World MS Day in Mumbai
As well as having banners up at various hospitals, they also had brochures in offices, Churchgate Railway station, the prestigious sporting event the Bombay Gymkhana, and even at Byculla Zoo. At Dadar Bandstand they gave out pamphlets as “Something Relevant”, a local rock band, played music. Sheela Chitnis from MSSI was also given two slots to talk about the day and work related issues people with MS face on a daily basis.
MSSI Mumbai also organised a half-day teaching workshop aimed at educating volunteers and staff in spreading awareness of MS. They focussed particularly on “Advocating for Employment Facilities” and “Improving Quality of Life”. In solidarity with MSSI chapters in the rest of the country, they also formed a human chain.
