Due to school and daycare closures, health-care workers are experiencing mounting personal pressures as they work on the frontlines of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Seeing this challenge, students in Queen’s University’s Faculty of Health Sciences are banding together to help health-care practitioners in Kingston by offering free services, such as, childcare, pet care, pick-ups and drop-offs and grocery shopping.
The initiative was started by members of the Aesculapian Society, the student government for the Queen’s School of Medicine, but quickly expanded to include students from across the Faculty of Health Sciences.
Many have come forward to volunteer and many health-care workers have reached out, requesting assistance.
