In Finland, local MS Societies and clubs are holding awareness raising events in shopping centres, marketplaces and pedestrian precincts around the country. The Finnish MS Society has prepared campaign material and press kits for local societies, which they will be distributing on the 25th May. The materials contain lots of information including key facts about MS and the impact it has on an individual’s ability to work, and the importance of supporting people with MS in continuing in employment. In total events have been organised in 24 cities around the country.

The Finnish National Broadcasting Company will be playing the World MS Day Campaign film, and local societies will be contacting their local press to share information, and stories of people with MS continuing in work.
