A SOCIAL SOLIDARITY ACTION
"The American Society of São Paulo delivers self-care kits to employees of the
Campo Limpo Municipal Hospital made possible through partnerships"
The American Society of São Paulo (AmSoc) sympathizes with healthcare professionals and the incredible sacrifices made in the course of the current Covid-19 pandemic, where they are indispensable participants in the front line of confrontation and care of others. For this reason, it organized a campaign to offer self-care kits on June 11th to all 500 employees of the Campo Limpo Municipal Hospital, the largest public hospital in the South of São Paulo city.
The inspiration for this social solidarity action came from a conversation between the organization's president, Patricia Christiani Campbell, and Dr. Luciana Carpanez, a pediatrician at this hospital. It was said that the hospital has, together with the urgent care center of Albert Einstein Hospital next door, a total of 250 beds for adults and children. The narrative presented made it very clear how overloaded and exhausted the professionals are feeling, which reassured Patricia and the board of directors that AmSoc wanted to show its support.
“The American Society wanted to celebrate healthcare professionals the day before when love and affection are expressed by many (Valentine's Day in Brazil is June 12th). These professionals give so much daily in caring for others but they also need to receive that affection back. There are many ways we can convey love, and this becomes even more important during the painful time we are going through. It's important to look at those outside of our circle. How can you show your love?" Patricia Christiani Campbell concluded.
AmSoc hopes the hospital staff feel embraced and remembered and hopes that this campaign will inspire more people, organizations and companies to reach out to our society and do as much as they can. Everyone has this responsibility as citizens.
