The COVID- 19 pandemic has been a tough experience all round; leaving many communities in disarray. These turbulent times have made daily life for local residents more difficult than usual. The new restrictions have affected people’s ability to attain basic requirements that we once took for granted – the most adversely affected by this being the elderly community.
Smarta Healthcare acknowledges the ongoing effects the virus is having on locals and has partnered up with Age UK to provide help to those who need it the most. In recent weeks Smarta Healthcare is proud to have contributed to their local community by providing food parcels to the elderly and vulnerable! This charitable service has been well received and goes some way to easing the impact that the pandemic is having on our local community. Superintendent Pharmacist for Smarta Healthcare, Baljit Kaur said “We’re delighted to be supporting the fantastic work being carried out by Age uk Bedfordshire and we hope the food donation will help the local elderly community.
“Throughout the pandemic, it has never been more important to support local foodbanks and help all those in need.
Some recipients of the charitable service have expressed their thanks to Smarta Healthcare staff for providing food that will last them for weeks, meaning that the elderly and vulnerable now do not feel under pressure to put themselves at risk by visiting the shops themselves
