On behalf of the Office of the Spouse of the Prime Minister and the Women and Girls Mentoring Coalition, Mrs. Patricia Minnis, wife of Prime Minister Hubert Minnis, presented nurses with over 300 care packages. The packages contain among other things, items for their relaxation in honour of the hard work they do especially during the COVID-19 pandemic. The year 2020 is the ‘Year of the Nurse,’ and Nurses Month was celebrated just recently, in May.
Mrs. Minnis said, “Nurses, we know that you show care and you are steadfast in all that you do; and all of us, although we may not want to, pass through your hands. So we want to say thank you.” Mrs. Minnis also thanked the many other healthcare workers on the front lines. Nurses Association of the Commonwealth of The Bahamas (NACB) President, Rebecca Johnson thanked Mrs. Minnis and the organizations on behalf of the nurses.
