Healthcare Worker Appreciation on International Women's Day Singapore
International Women's Day, celebrated yearly on 8th March, signifies and commemorates the contributions of many women to our society. On this day, healthcare workers, sacrificed their Sunday to prevent further outbreak of COVID-19. These healthcare workers, consist majority of women worked tirelessly to fight against the virus outbreak so that Singaporean can live a better life.
While healthcare workers worked long shift without breaks, they were sadly shun upon by certain group of people. There were reported cases of healthcare workers forced out of public transport because they were wearing their uniforms. These harassment act spurred many people to contribute to healthcare workers in every way possible.
At Little Florist Dream, we believe in women empowerment as well as appreciation of our healthcare workers. Thus, we did what we do best on International Women's Day- putting a smile on peoples' faces :). We decided to give away free flower bouquets to healthcare workers as an appreciation for their dedication and perseverance during this trying period.
We arrived at link bridge between Tan Tock Seng Hospital and U2 Square at 6.45am in an attempt to catch the shift change over time. We were glad to meet the healthcare workers, both going to work and going home. Many were happy to receive the flowers and thanked us for the appreciation. The flower bouquets were all given away within 45 minutes. We were contented that our small action was able to bring happiness to people and make their day brighter.
