Want to thank a healthcare worker personally? This Facebook page can help you do just that
The Evolvers Network along with Swetaranya Ayurvedashram are featuring the photographs of kids holding placards of gratitude on their social media page
A question for the kids who clapped from their balconies to show their gratitude to healthcare workers two weeks back. Do you wish to thank a healthcare worker friend of yours personally, though? Then, all you need to do is follow a few instructions, and your words of gratitude will be featured on the social media page of Swetaranya Ayurvedashram, an Ayurvedic hospital at Tirur, Kerala.
This concept has been curated by The Evolvers Network, a content managing firm, along with Swetaranya Ayurvedashram. "The kid has to hold a paper which has the following words 'Thank you for taking care of us'. This picture can be sent to Swetaranya's Facebook or Instagram page," says Sreeja K, a member of Evolvers Network. "Along with the photo, the kid can express their gratitude to any of the doctors, nurses, ambulance drivers or ASHA workers too. All they have to do is write to us what they feel about them. Also, if they aspire to become like them, they can write that to us with the reason," adds Ananthu Vasudev, Sreeja's husband, who is also part of the team.
The initiative was curated by the Evolvers Network and Swetaranya Ayurvedashram
What happens next? "Once the required details reach us, we start designing the poster. Rameez Rasheed, a friend, who learnt to use designing tools during this quarantine period also helps us out," tells Sreeja. Almost 20 kids have participated in this initiative from April 7, which coincidentally was World Health Day. The kids can send their entries to them till April 14, informs the team. "On the last day, we are planning to collect the responses from the doctors or other healthcare workers whom the kids have mentioned in their posters," tells Ananthu.
Explaining the impact this simple act can create, Ananthu shares, "By thanking the ones whom they know, the kids are given an opportunity to respect them and understand their profession at a budding stage. Also, when they see their photo featured with their ambition, it gives them an early boost to work towards their dream."
