Adelaide’s frontline workers are being shown the support they deserve in a special way from the heart.
Volunteers from Rotary Adelaide are busy preparing and delivering nurture kits to support Adelaide’s frontline medical workers during the peak of the Covid-19 pandemic.
A dedicated team of Rotary volunteers have packed more than 200 nurture kits which are being distributed to staff at the Royal Adelaide Hospital’s Covid-19 ward this week.
They are boxes of goodness filled with items aimed at putting smiles on hardworking faces. They include donations such as candles, essential oils, coffee mugs, bath salts, hand cream and more.
“The nurture kits are just one way we can assist and show our appreciation for the tireless work our frontline health workers do every day,” said Rotary volunteer, Jo Fiedler.
“As covid peaks in South Australia, we’re looking to support as many health care workers who are caring for the state’s most vulnerable patients as possible.
“We’re calling on businesses and individuals to donate ‘nurture’ items for the kits such as scented candles, herbal teas, beauty face masks and other luxury items.”
The Nurture Kits for Nurses program has been developed by community-driven organisation, The Rotary Club of Adelaide to support the resilience of healthcare workers in Adelaide’s hospitals and aged care homes.
Monetary donations can also be made with funds going towards luxury self-care items for the nurture kits.
Last year, the workforce wellbeing initiative delivered more than 150 nurture kits to hardworking nurses at the Women’s and Children’s Hospital and over 1000 kits to Calvary Hospitals.
