Preschool children pay tribute to COVID-19 frontliners
Amid the spreading of COVID-19, little children at Tzu Chi Great Love PreSchool are aware of the hard work of the frontline workers. Despite not being able to go out to personally send their blessings to the frontline workers, they used their tiny hands and tender voices to draw cards and make video recordings to express their gratitude to those battling the disease at the frontline.
Holding a handmade card, the preschool students express their gratitude to the frontliners in front of the camera. As the world battles the COVID-19 pandemic, little children at Tzu Chi PreSchool are aware of the hard work of the frontliners. Besides recording video clips to convey their blessings, they also express their gratitude in the form of thank you cards.
