Las Flores de Colombia rindieron homenaje al cuerpo médico del Hospital de Elmhurst en Nueva York
“Flowers of Colombia” continues to pay tribute to those who through effort and dedication have contributed to the well-being of society during the Covid-19-pandemic. On this occasion, we wanted to support the emotional and mental well-being of the Elmhurst Hospital staff in New York, one of the institutions that has absorbed the greatest impact from the Covid-19 crisis», said Augusto Solano, president of Asocolflores (Asociación Colombiana de Exportadores de Flores).

This initiative was organized by the participants of the annual Colombian Flower Festival in New York, until now celebrated each July, which has been supported for more than 10 years by Asocolflores to promote Colombian culture, folklore, traditions and heritage in the United States.
“The colors, textures and aromas of Colombian roses, carnations, alstroemerias and chrysanthemums were brought to the hospital’s healthcare professionals, seeking to help them cope with the intense emotional pressure they have been under during the current emergency”, Mr. Solano added.
During the tribute, a minute of silence was observed for all those who died as a result of the pandemic, and other expressions of support were seen and heard as thanks to the tenacity and hard work of this Hospital´s medical staff.
