At least 20,000 healthcare workers will receive the food vouchers.
In a show of appreciation and support for healthcare workers during this pandemic, businessman and owner of Spanish football club Valencia and Thomson Medical Centre has donated $1m worth of meals. An official statement says: “Priority is given to the unsung heroes: the group of workers whose work is often less visible yet integral to the frontline response, e.g. the housekeeping staff, patient care assistants and ambulance drivers etc.”
The donation is made under the initiative Food for Frontline and at least 20,000 people working at Alexandra Hospital, Changi General Hospital, Khoo Teck Puat Hospital, KK Women’s and Children’s Hospital, National University Hospital, Ng Teng Fong General Hospital, Sengkang General Hospital, Singapore General Hospital, Tan Tock Seng Hospital and the National Centre for Infectious Diseases will be receiving the food vouchers.
Healthcare workers can redeem their vouchers at more than 160 food outlets including Casuarina Curry Restaurant, EAT, Encik Tan, Kopitiam, Foodfare and Fei Siong.
Lim is not the only person in his family who is showing his appreciation for healthcare workers. His daughter Kim Lim has also been making weekly food deliveries to hospitals, polyclinics and clinics around the island. In late February, Kim and her colleagues put together care packs that consists of hand sanitisers with wipe wipes, soaps biscuits as well as useful hygiene guide for the elderly and underprivileged.
