Photographer Rankin, and philanthropy card company philropy, have joined forces and created a digital card that is available to buy and share to show support and pay tribute to NHS workers.
It has been over two years since the world shut down to cope with COVID-19, during which time NHS staff have continuously shown courage and saved countless lives.
The picture on the card was photographed by Rankin as a tribute to NHS staff, and shows Dr Farzana Hussain, General Practitioner at Project Surgery in Newham, whose dedication has never wavered.
“Now more than ever, it’s important that we see the humanity that makes up our GP practices, community services and hospitals. Every member of staff has their own story, fears and hopes for the future. I think Rankin’s photography brings this out really well.”
“As the coronavirus pandemic began to unfold, I was moved by the incredible efforts of people across the NHS and I wanted to document who they are and their role in fighting this disease. Taking a portrait is a unique and intimate experience, even with social distancing in place. Everyone had their own inspiring story which to them was just doing their job. I hope these images portray the resilience and courage they show every day in the face of real adversity.”
philropy is a digital philanthropy cards company that produces and distributes digital cards featuring non-profit organisations and charities from all over the globe. philropy’s mission is to enable digital users to discover the world of charity and make a difference from the virtual to the real world.
Proceeds from the card will come to NHS Charities Together, helping to fund our efforts in supporting staff through the long-term impact of the pandemic.
Ellie Orton OBE, Chief Executive at NHS Charities Together, said:
“We are so incredibly grateful to Rankin and philropy for their efforts to support the NHS and its staff. It’s been just over two years since the Covid-19 pandemic started and while in many ways the situation has improved, there is still a long road to recovery. As the national, independent charity caring for the NHS, we are here to help achieve better healthcare for us all. With your support we can help the NHS go further, and provide the extras that make a massive difference to staff, patients and communities across the UK.”
The card is available now for $2.99USD (approx. £2.29) at philropy.com/nhs. When you buy one, we will receive $2.00USD to help us continue providing NHS staff with the extra support they need.
Together, we can help the NHS go further.
