According to Joy new’s Gary Al-Smith, government has cut of food arrangements that were initially made to provide food for frontline workers at the UGMC.
Gary was admitted at the UGMC last week after he tested positive for Covid-19. Seems the sensational Journalist hasn’t only been taking his medication but also doing his professional work at the health Center.
He shared the information in a series of tweet.
“Frontline workers at the UGMC Intensive Care Unit have had their food arrangements cut because, apparently there’s no money.
A lot of us non-ICU patients feel very guilty having 3-sq meals, while these heroes, who regularly work 12hr shifts, don’t have that privilege.
At least, there’s NO LUNCH and no drinking water for ICU frontline workers at UGMC. A memo was sent recently informing them.
GCB’s 100K donation was partly to pay for lunch of ICU staff and volunteers. Unclear if the money is finished.
Help us change this, please.
When the COVID-19 fight started, there were arrangements for regular food and water for them.
Now, with numbers of patients increasing – especially the critical and severely ill – it is quite sad that these important things have been cut.
You’d recall that my colleague @TheIsraelLaryea made a public appeal for mattresses this wk. That’s bcos he’d been informed that the frontline workers are unable to get mattresses to sleep on between shifts. Israel’s call led to Ashfoam making a same day donation.
What happens is that when they clock off, these volunteers and staff of the ICU now have to go and look for food, themselves. ” Gary narrated what is going
Gary also pleaded with the general public to the aid of these frontline workers.
“No need to blame anyone. If you’re interested in providing breakfast or lunch or supper for the frontline ICU workers at UGMC, let me know.” He pleaded.
