The chief minister said that we have overcome the first wave of the pandemic owing to the nurses’ fortitude, commitment and sincerity
Manipur chief minister N Biren Singh greeted the nursing fraternity of the state on the occasion of International Nurses Day, the birth anniversary of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing.
CM Biren in a statement said that the day marks the contributions that the nursing profession makes to society.
“You have been at the forefront in the fight against the deadly Covid 19 pandemic. You have dedicated invaluable time and energy that you could otherwise have spent with your near and dear ones, in caring for and nursing our people back to health.
You have forgotten your own fears and pains in tending to the pains of others. You work silently behind curtains and in the remotest corners of our land, delivering love and care, for a better and lovelier tomorrow for all of us.
You are our mothers, fathers, brothers and sisters for our patients. Your sacrifices have earned the respect and love of us all, old and young, rich and poor, men and women. You make it possible for us to hope and dream for another birth in this lifetime. You give meaning to humanity,” CM Biren said in the message.
The chief minister further said that we have overcome the first wave of the pandemic owing to the nurses’ fortitude, commitment and sincerity. I believe it will also be with your grit, resilience and reassuring warm hearts that we will overcome every other challenge to human health, be it the second wave of the pandemic or even worse, he added.
“On International Nurses Day today, I join the people of Manipur in expressing our sincerest gratitude and in saluting each one of you. May God give you more strength in caring for us all,” he added.
