Thank you Singapore Healthcare Workers
An Initiative by TVQS -too early and too late for grant applications because it's done
COVID19 has been both a gift and a curse to our humanity. Apart from the disruption of the “normal” life most people lead, it has also brought perspectives not new to human, on why we should co-exist with Nature and Wildlife in particular, harmoniously & respectfully.
Still, the fatalities, loss of jobs, severe impact to health services are a few of the many casualties we can all empathize with, not only towards our shared Singapore experiences.
During Singapore Circuit Breaker period 7 April - 2 June, TVQS initiated an online collaborative effort to give Thanks to our Healthcare workers being inundated with COVID19 tests and treatments. With friends who generously give their cheers – through recording their clapping; and local artists who shared their concern through painting of our Singapore Flower, hence this edited 28 sec video is our tribute and collective memoir of a wish for all sentient beings to stay resilient and imbued with goodwill for one another.
A single drop of compassion is immeasurable. May our little drop be of some healing, protecton and encouragement to all healthcare workers – medical, transportation, scheduling, laboratory, sanitary, contact tracing etc. Thus may they continue to stay healthy and keep Singaporeans safe and healthy too.
Lastly, TVQS thanks everyone who participated and trusted this project beyond further explanation.

Papilionanthe Miss Joaquim is the Singapore National Flower, a hybrid Orchid cross between the Burmese Vanda teres and the Malayan Vanda hookeriana. It was cultivated by Agnes Joaquim, an Armenian lady residing in Singapore in the 19th Century. Formerly known as Vanda Miss Joaqium, the flower was chosen in 1981 April as the Singapore Flower for its vibrant colours, hardiness and resilience – qualities that reflect the Singapore spirit...
