In this time of crisis, it is a comforting act to see people working and helping each other in order to survive this struggle together. From celebrities, prominent figures in the society and even ordinary citizens, all are reaching out their hands to help those who are in need.
This flower shop owner from Bacolod City, Philippines is one of these many citizens who make a commendable effort for our country. In her case, she donated fresh flowers to boost the spirits of our front liners.
In a post by TV Patrol Negros, a flower shop owner named Pau Lopez had to harvest her crop in the midst of the health emergency. So, instead of letting it all wither in one area, she went out of her way and gave it to the front liners.
She went to various hospitals in the city to surprise them with fresh and beautiful flowers.
In the photos that went with the post, healthcare workers, hospital staff, security guards, utility workers, drivers and receptionists of hospitals were all smiling with long-stemmed roses, sunflowers, Million Flowers, Baby’s Breath and Chrysanthemum flowers in their hands.
Even the police officers who were in charge of the checkpoints were surprised to receive the flowers.
According to Lopez, this is her own little way of expressing her gratefulness to all our front liners for their sacrifice in order to protect the whole community against the pandemic.
We hope that receiving these flowers, all our front liners will be able to reminisce how it feels to be loved. Just like how people feel when they receive flowers from their lovers.
