WATWB – We are the world blogfest. WATWB is about spreading love in a world that we so often see (focus on??) the darkness. It means posting once a month about something that touched you.
Someone shared this link with me. All my WATWB posts (I think all) are about acts of kindness. This one tells us that in Queensland the government are providing a decomissioned ambulance – along with medically trained volunteers – to grant final wishes of terminally ill patients.
In late 2017, ambulance officers in the northern state of Queensland took a detour on the way to hospital as per the wishes of a dying patient who wanted to see the ocean one last time….
“Fulfilling the final wishes of people can be challenging as you could be transporting someone who can’t walk, or sit in a chair, or who might require continuous oxygen or other medical appliances and support,” Queensland Health Minister Steven Miles said in a statement.
The Australian-first initiative is modelled on a similar programme run in the Netherlands.MSN news
I think it’s awesome how the government are the ones starting this initiative, and I love hearing about acts of kindness.
What acts of kindness have others done for you or have you done for others?
Love, light and glitter
