Kate shares candid view over public support to frontline workers – ‘Sad, almost’
Kate expressed her wholehearted appreciation for the job carried out by frontline staff during a call with Dr Zolelwa Sifumba, a South Africa-based advocate for the rights of healthcare workers on the frontline. During their chat, the Duchess of Cambridge told the doctor: “Here in the UK there’s been masses of public recognition of the amazing work the frontline are doing and it’s sad, almost, that it’s taken the pandemic for the public to really back and support all those working on the front line.”
Kate, who was joined by Prince William during this virtual engagement, heard Dr Sifumba’s experience and advice when it comes to supporting frontline workers.
The medic told the royals: “We actually know the problems, we see the problems every day, you walk into work there are the problems.
“The problem is our voices are not heard.
“We are on the front lines and we are expected to lift humanity.
“So my advice to everybody is, if you know a healthcare worker – any healthcare worker – you just love on them, love on them, love on them some more.
