We know October seems a long way off and it’s hard to predict what things will be like, but World Zombie Day is still coming. It’s…
October 10th 2020
…but PLEASE plan your zombie day according to government guidelines.
The organisers had already decided to discontinue the large London event and therefore were not planning on to carry out this event as it had been in prior years. Individuals can still put on their own smaller fundraising online and are encouraged to do so. Please visit our FAQ page if you wish for your event to be shared on our website or social media.
Because this is WORLD ZOMBIE DAY we are encouraging participants to join in on this day from all around the world to enact change for all of us.
We are all connected and we all need each other.
Our chosen charity, Médecins Sans Frontières UK/Doctors Without Borders (MSF) is an independent emergency medical aid organisation. MSF provides relief to the victims of war, natural disasters and epidemics irrespective of gender, race, creed, religion, or political convictions in more than 70 countries across the globe.
Their teams are responding to the coronavirus emergency on multiple fronts—caring for patients, offering health education and mental health support, and providing training for vital infection control measures in health facilities around the world. MSF is working with local authorities in many of the countries where they have medical projects to help prepare for the impact of COVID-19.
A key priority is to keep their regular medical programs running for the tens of thousands of patients and extremely vulnerable communities they help support. This pandemic threatens the lives of people around the world, and presents even greater risks in countries with weak or fragile health systems.
