From my cousin Noreen Mahmood, a nurse at Fraser Health Authority, Delta, British Columbia, Canada:
I am a healthcare worker, an RN, and to be honest I don’t need free pizza or free cups of coffee. I don’t need money off of vouchers etc. I am grateful that I won’t be losing all my income due to this virus, and as much as I greatly appreciate the gesture: please please please offer a free cup of coffee or pizza instead to the families who are struggling to feed their children, the homeless on the streets, the older generation or self employed, and to anyone else who is suffering financially from Covid-19 measures, and is not covered by government grants or loans.
To my colleagues past and present, please copy and paste to get this message out there !! Thank you x
