Give Peace a Chance - IPPNW's Annual Charity Raffle
Overview

Profits raised by the raffle were used to fund the IPPNW Biking Against Nukes (BAN) Tour and international medical students organizing worldwide. BAN tour participants biked 750km over 11 days and met with politicians, held public demonstrations and visited the last remaining nuclear weapons base in Germany on their way to the 2010 IPPNW World Congress in Basel, Switzerland.

In August 2012 young anti-nuclear activists from all over the world will cycle through Japanese villages, organizing public rallies, meeting politicians, and
spreading the IPPNW message. As of November students and young doctors from the following countries are registered for the 2012 tour: Nigeria, Nicaragua, Iran, Egypt, Norway, Germany, Denmark, Russia, Switzerland, the UK, Canada, Australia, India, Nepal, and the Philippines.

As the next generation of health professionals, IPPNW medical students are already playing an active role in safeguarding the planet’s health.

Working with IPPNW affiliated organizations throughout the world, medical students show by example and are changing how social responsibility is imagined, developed and deployed. IPPNW medical students work on many projects to promote peace, disarmament, and human rights.
