Brands pay homage to the ‘silent heroes’ on International Nurses Day

Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing, was born on 12 May in 1820.

MUMBAI: Celebrated world over as the birthday of Florence Nightingale, 12 May or ‘International Nurses Day’ recognises the work of nurses around the globe. Since the beginning of the pandemic, compromising their own safety, nurses have become the primary caregiver and family to countless Covid patients isolated away from their homes and loved ones.

Lauding their tireless effort and to shine a spotlight on their contributions, brands paid homage to these selfless healthcare professionals working on the frontlines of the battle against Covid-19.

L’Oréal Paris shared its heartfelt gratitude for the covid warrior nurses through a digital film featuring their brand ambassadors Aditi Rao Hydari, Sobhita Dhulipala, Shakti Mohan and Mithali Raj. The film carries a strong message and is a humble tribute to these heroes for their phenomenal strength, grit, and selfless contribution.

Global b2b platform Bulk MRO that services corporations, governments and healthcare networks across Europe, North America, India, Middle East, and Africa saluted the nurses’ spirit of service through a post on LinkedIn.

It said: “It’s International Nurses Day today, and we’re honouring the men and women at the front lines who are going above and beyond while facing what most of us can’t even imagine.

Today’s registered nurses are everyday heroes. They are putting their health and safety on the line to help us in the fight against Covid-19, and we owe it to them to do our part to keep our families and communities safe.
