The student-led initiative seeks to provide free childcare, errands and other volunteer services to health care providers in the London and Windsor areas between March 23 and April 3 while elementary and secondary schools in Ontario are closed.
It's being organized by medical students Yashoda Valliere, Gali Katznelson, Chris Zhang, Jessica Garabon and Montana Hackett.“Although we are not yet physicians, we have an opportunity to support our colleagues. We are excited to begin this initiative, and we applaud our fellow medical students across the country who are now organizing in their own communities,” says fourth-year medical student Yashoda Valliere.

Here's another way: Loving Kindness Meditation
While washing your hands say it 3 times ~ one for all those you love; one for those you are not at peace with; one for all of those you haven't met (like healthcare workers!)
