COVID – 19 took the world by storm and shook everyone’s souls. Healthcare professionals are at the forefront of this battle. Healthcare systems and personnel are being overstretched and overwhelmed.

The intricacies of the battle are being sorted and plans are being put in place. At a time like this, the policymakers and planners should keep the safety of healthcare workers as the top priority. The pandemic may pass eventually, but to keep the integrity of healthcare systems intact once that happens, we need every soldier at the start of the battle to be there at the other end to rebuild and reconstruct.

The whole of mankind is left in a state of panic and confusion and yet, Samarptians are going out of their way to ease everyone’s pain. We reached the slums of Dehradun to increase awareness about COVID – 19 and teach the less informed about the prevention methods. Our team risked their life to save the lives of others by providing free health check-up program and are also providing with food and livelihood in Dehradun slums. Our experts talked to COVID – 19 positive patients and counselled them to cope up with the harsh situations. We will never give up and keep working towards making a better and safer country. Till then, stay home, stay safe!

This is our appeal to colleagues in the war on COVID-19, to be compassionate to their colleagues and juniors and the front line healthcare workers and let us vow to protect every one of them, so that they can continue the services they are known for in the decades to come when this pandemic may hopefully be history.
