‘Pain is beauty’ is a saying that was thrown around a lot in the student centre at Laurentian University on March 18.

Male students lined up to get their legs, back, shoulders and chests waxed to raise funds to purchase bicycle ambulances in Malawi, in southeast Africa.

The event was organized by the Sudbury committee of World University Service of Canada (WUSC) Student Refugee Program.

The goal was to raise at least $500 – which is what it costs to purchase one bicycle ambulance – and to raise awareness about HIV and AIDS in Malawi.
