The Lady with the lamp.

For example, Florence Nightingale became the founder of nursing – also called. She takes her name from her role in the Crimean War where she walked through the barracks with her lamp at night to help wounded soldiers. She was literally a bright spot in a dark time.

Today, on Care Day, it is 200 years since Florence was born. That is why we bring in our photo series

#ikbenflorence an ode to her and all the hardworking nurses Who now, just like Florence, bring light in this dark time.
