Caring in Covid
Welfare for Healthcare was founded in April 2020 as a response to COVID19. Within a month our campaign surpassed its £10,000 target, care packages were made available for thousands of hospital staff & 100s of hospital scrubs had been altered by an army of volunteers for those who needed them. We witnessed and were delightfully caught up in that incredible time when everyone wanted to help & kindness flowed.
25,000 people - from medical consultants to hospital porters - accessed the well-being pop-up shops that Welfare for Healthcare helped to fund," said Jason Levy, Head of Fundraising at WAHT.
Your help has been so amazing; the morale boost has been so much more than you can imagine, said Dr Moolla, Consultant
The world has been changed by this pandemic & we recognise that people's wellbeing is at risk through stress, anxiety, grief, unemployment, fear for the future or erratic access to education. We have taken the strategic decision to meet some of those needs.
Gifts to show you care
We invited Worcester-based artist, Susan Birth, to produce an art range based around the swans on the River Severn to honour key workers & to be used on fundraising merchandise. As we enter Autumn & face darker days & colder nights coupled with further social restrictions, we recognise that the national mood is low. As an encouragement, we have just launched a new product range to honour those who work in the media, legal, care, medical & delivery services. These complement the original range which includes clergy, postal workers, medical staff, teachers, volunteers, supermarket workers & police.
Please Fly to our Shop and purchase a gift to honour a key worker who has cared for you during this crisis. Or simply buy something for yourself? Donations of £2.99+ will be made on each purchase & shared out amongst our chosen charities. Shop today Welfare for Healthcare gift range
