Pinay nurse ginawaran ng award ni Prince Charles
Binigyan ng parangal sa London ang isang Pinay nurse dahil sa naging partisipasyon nito bilang first responder sa tinaguriang London Bridge terror attack noong 2017.
Mismong si Prince Charles ang nagkaloob ng Order of the British Empire (OBE) Award kay Joy Ongcachuy.
Si Ongcachuy ng Talisayan, Misamis Oriental ay nagtatrabaho sa Royal London Hospital mula pa noong 2002.
Nabatid na si Ongcachuy ay isa sa tatlong nakatanggap ng OBE Award.
Ipinagmalaki naman ng Philippine Embassy sa United Kingdom ang karangalang pinagkaloob sa Pinay.
“One of her friends from her native Philippines had started working at St Bartholomew’s and recommended the trust as a great place to work. Keen to establish a new life for herself and her family in the UK, Joy hopped on a plane with 23 other Filipino nurses and joined The Royal London as a scrub nurse- a role she held until she was promoted last year to robotic lead nurse,” ayon sa post ng Philippine Embassy.
“Growing up, Joy always wanted to be a nurse. She loves to look after people and is passionate about providing care to others.”
