My name is Saima and I am a Consultant in Emergency Medicine at Indus Hospital in Karachi. We deal with suspected and confirmed COVID cases all day long, using our PPE and going through the laborious routine of breathing through an N95 mask. We are fortunate to have these, many colleagues across Pakistan don’t. Our worst fear is taking it back home to our families. As frontline healthcare workers, no one is more cognizant of the situation than us.
We are being praised across the world, and the feeling is exhilarating. People are clapping for us, songs are being sung, and we are receiving salutes. All of this works as a great morale booster, for which we are thankful.

Thankyou so much for your bravery and kindness. Our son and daughterinlaw are among you. We know from experience that you lay your lives down for people you don’t know. Be sure that it has been said Greater love has no man than this, that a man lay down his life for a friend. Well done. God loves you so much and so do we!

Dear Friends, one angle of encouragement, perhaps is that even though some are rebelling, some are depressed, we are all in this together. Who knows, did we enter the physical body in order to train for such times? If all is practised and demonstrated in love, then we will get through this, even those who are dying are performing a service to encourage compassion. With love, Margaret Coles.
