To categorical gratitude for the work of healthcare suppliers in the course of the pandemic, the art work of many youngsters had been pooled in and handed over to the RGGGH.
“Thank you for being there for us. You are a superhero,” learn a card on show, whereas one other one mentioned, “Thank you so much for risking your lives for us. It is the most kindest thing anybody has done.”
The works introduced smiles on the faces of doctors, nurses and staff of RGGGH.
“We got more than 200 cards from the volunteer-children. There were drawings, paintings and letters, all thanking us for our work during the pandemic. Looking at the contribution from the children definitely made our day. I wanted all our staff to take a look at the messages, and so displayed the cards on boards outside the COVID-19 block, my office and at the Madras Medical College campus,” E. Theranirajan, Dean of RGGGH, mentioned.
In truth, in one of many drawings, a toddler had portrayed a healthcare staff as “Captain America” combating coronavirus, he identified.
