CAPE TOWN – Doctors and nurses from Livingstone Hospital in Port Elizabeth have gotten together to sing an original song in hopes to inspire and lift the spirits of South Africa.
As South Africa still fights the Covid-19 pandemic and continues to face all the hardships the pandemic has put on further pressure, a group of doctors and nurses gathered in song in efforts to lift the spirits of the hospital and inspire the country.
As a government hospital, resources are extremely limited with the pandemic highlighting the shortfalls of public hospitals throughout the country with Livingstone facing negative publicity over the past couple of months.
Professor Lungile Pepeta found an opportunity to reunite the staff of Livingstone Hospital by combatting the recent negative press and shining a light on what they do in hopes to inspire the rest of South Africa too.
“The concept was received with great enthusiasm by our tremendous team of clinicians. Primarily driven by the ICU team, we involved our surgeons, emergency physicians and so many more world-class Healthcare professionals who are the ‘masked face’ of late nights and hard work. Most have never been in a recording studio, let alone sing on an original song they’ve never heard before,” it said in the Youtube description.
“We were so unified through this process and trust that the world gets to see a little beyond the anxiety of the Covid-19 pandemic with our song.”
