Today we delivered 340 ear savers and 100 doctors’ caps to the Emergency ward of Westmead Hospital. We also delivered 200 ear savers to the Emergency ward of Royal North Shore Hospital. Thank you Sister Diana and all the Bodhisattva for making these colourful doctors’ caps and ear savers. While our hard-working doctors, nurses and staff continue their vitally important duties, protecting and improving health and well-being of people in our communities, we are grateful to be able to help in making these caps and ear savers necessities for them. Dr Varshney, the Deputy director of the Emergency ward, thanked Tzu Chi for our great support, making these colourful and beautifully handmade caps for them as the pandemic continues to challenge health care providers across Sydney. Phillippa Weaver from the Emergency department of Royal North Shore hospital also thanked Tzu Chi for our beautifully hand knitted ear savers. She said, ear savers are the unsung hero for health care and other front liners at the hospital. Because of the friction caused by the face masks after wearing them for an extended period of time , often staff have to adjust the face masks to relieve the constant rubbing and pressure. However, with the ear savers it helps reduce this reaction, thus significantly increase the comfort of wearing the face masks. Again, thank you everyone for your loving kindness and dedication in making these caps and ear savers for the hospitals. Gan En
