Youth Corps Singapore hands out care packs to frontline staff in show of support.
Most Tan Tock Seng Hospital (TTSH) staff that were heading to work on Friday (14 Feb) morning, or leaving for home after the night shift, had one thing in common: they all had the look of tiredness.
YCS staff and volunteers like 20-year-old Chin Jun Wuen managed to brighten up the mood of 300 frontline staff, including nurses and doctors, from 7am and 8am.
The care packs, which contain snacks and can drinks, were packed by YCS members on Thursday.
When asked about her thoughts of nurses being discriminated in public, she replied: “For us nurses, we are really working hard together. We don’t think so much (about the risk involved), we just want to do our job as hard as we can because it’s what we are there for.”
“I volunteered for this initiative because I felt it is meaningful, especially at this point of time. It really is the time when youths can rally together and show we are not afraid of the virus, and more importantly, we are not stigmatising the healthcare workers,” said the youngster.
“What we are doing is really a form of saying thank you to them, and to let them know we appreciate what they are doing. It is not easy for them to be at the forefront of this fight against the virus.”
YCS was also at Outram MRT Station on Friday afternoon to hand out the care packs to medical staff from the Singapore General Hospital. Minister for Transport Khaw Boon Wan joined YCS to show support and appreciate the healthcare workers for their effort.
