Lotus Light Delivered PPE and Treats to Show Appreciation to Healthcare Frontline Workers
The 3rd wave of covid-19 pandemic in British Columbia has recently brought the new daily coronavirus cases over 1K continually. The pressure is getting high and approaching the breaking point on our medical systems. Some hospitals in Fraser Health and Vancouver Coastal Health have less than five per cent capacity in medical and ICU units.
Dr. Bonnie Henry, provincial officer called upon fellow BC citizen to follow all existing COVID-19 restrictions to ease the “immense” and growing pressure on doctors, nurses and others in the health-care system. “We knew they (healthcare workers) were there for us and we wanted to show our appreciation,” Henry said. “They are still there for us and have been for the last 15 months – so let’s take care of the people who are taking care of us.”
On April 22 Lotus Light Charity Society Vancouver partnering with Protect Frontline Workers Group sent a large quantity of personal protection gears to Richmond Hospital, including plastic and knit earsavers, laundry bags, scrub caps & headbands, hospital nurse uniforms, isolation gowns (protective full-size uniform for nurses). The donations are delivered directly to Richmond Hospital’s medical staff, Intensive Care Unit, and Cardiac Unit, with fresh brewed, dark roast coffee donated by Starbucks Sea Island to show our great respects and appreciation to the frontline hospital workers who are actively saving lives, treating and protecting our citizens.
Hospital staff were amazed with all these donations and dearly expressed thanks to Lotus Light, Protect Frontline Workers and Starbucks Sea Island!
Lotus Light wish everyone should wear proper personal protective equipment, maintain hand-sanitizing, keep social-distancing, and most importantly – abide the provincial health restrictions that are in place to help stop the spread of COVID-19, and to show our supports to the frontline hospital workers.
Lotus Light would like to thanks Bit and Protect Frontline Workers Group, and Kim and Starbucks Sea Island for their supports to our frontline hospital workers.
Since the beginning of the Covie-19 pandemic, Lotus Light Charity Society has donated over 50,000 personal protection equipment to hospitals workers, community policing centers, inner- city schools, charities and organizations serving the vulnerable populations in our community, benefiting thousands of people.
