Motivational Cards Designed for Frontliners and COVID-19 Patients are Displayed Online Using this Creative Platform

As the spread and anxiety brought by the COVID-19 pandemic continue across the globe, we have seen the number of cases also escalate in the Philippines, placing Filipino healthcare workers at the forefront of this continuing battle. Doctors, nurses, laboratory technicians, and hospital staff face the hazard of infection everyday. Virus-stricken patients, on the other hand, have limited to no contact to their families, contributing to the immense sense of exhaustion and defeat that the virus brings.

If there’s one thing that keeps them going: it’s the overflowing support of families, friends, and even strangers.

Online design platform Canva recently enjoined citizens online to show their support through designing motivational cards with the use of pre-made Canva templates. In response, different groups and individuals have shared their messages to our frontline heroes, especially patients.

“At a time when the country is facing multiple restrictions, it’s more important than ever to reach out to those in isolation. It’s incredibly motivating to see so many people step up to demonstrate compassion, something I hope will continue once COVID-19 is eradicated. We’re putting people first, which in turn provides stability and psychological safety in the community – the key to all of us winning the war on an invisible, yet shared, enemy,” shared Yani Hornilla-Donato, Canva Manila, Country Manager.

Canva sent over 4,000 motivational cards and Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) donations to hospitals around Metro Manila to applaud the unimaginable sacrifice and dedication of the healthcare workers, and to show support to those patients battling for their lives in hospitals due to disease.
