As a mark of their love and appreciation to the healthcare professionals fighting the COVID19 pandemic, the children from SOS Children’s Village Greenfields, Faridabad sent rakhis and hand-made cards to the doctors, nurses, and the staff of Max Smart Super Specialty Hospital at Saket and Gurgaon, on the eve of Raksha Bandhan.

Also known as Rakhi Purnima or Rakhi, which falls on the full moon day (Purnima) of the Shravana month of the Hindu solar calendar (August 22, this year), Raksha Bandhan is an age-old tradition of celebrating the sacred relationship of brothers and sisters. The occasion marks the tying of Rakhi, a decorative thread, by sisters on the wrists of their brothers. 

Amidst the pandemic, the children of SOS Children’s Village Greenfields, Faridabad decided to make Raksha Bandhan a memorable one for healthcare professionals in the line of duty of treating COVID-19 patients. They made Rakhis and cards carrying words of love and gratitude, in hundreds, all by themselves and chose to send them to the doctors, nurses, and the staff of Max Healthcare hospitals. The children’s gesture overwhelmed the entire team of Max Healthcare hospitals. 

Arpita Mukherjee, VP Operation, Max Hospital, Gurgaon said, “Rakhi is an occasion for the celebration of faith and duty. Our healthcare professionals have been at the frontline during the pandemic with untiring efforts to help patients. We thank the children from SOSCVI for lifting our spirit by sending across their rakhis and cards they made with lots of thought and affection. We wish them all a happy rakhi and a very bright future.”
