Headbands with colorful buttons for NHS workers in Cardiff

Headbands with colorful buttons for NHS workers in Cardiff

Categories: Past Event Articles

Tuesday June 09 2020

After seeing photos of NHS workers with painful bruises behind their ears from wearing surgical masks for long hours due to COVID19 pandemic. One of the MEND volunteers, Ismatara and her children decided to buy headbands and sew colourful buttons on them.

These buttons helped to hook the surgical masks’ straps instead of hooking them behind the ears in order to prevent bruises. The children also made “Thank You” cards which were distributed with the colourful buttoned headbands to the NHS staff, working at the intensive care unit (ICU) of Heath Hospital in Cardiff.  This activity gave the family such joy and pleasure. The family is hoping to inspire others to do similar acts of kindness to support the brave and hardworking NHS staff who are in the frontline, fighting COVID19.
