1. Introduction

We have one life, we have one world.

Nature our resources everything comes from earth and mother nature.

There have been so many natural disasters around the world. Disasters that cause long-lasting devastation. Devastation that causes loss of life, loss of home, loss of everything ever owned. Some of these natural disasters have been caused due to climate change. Which is the theme for this year’s World health day “Protecting health from climate change”.

As humans, our health, mental and physical wellbeing is ever so important. Especially more so with the times, we are living in worldwide.

*update (15th April)- Due to the most unfortunate natural disaster in St Vincent with the Volcano, we have amended this topic to include information on the current situation and ways that we can help*.

In the UK, we are currently in the fourth month of the second national lockdown due to the current worldwide pandemic. A pandemic that has changed our world and our way of living and our way of existing and this has been for 13 months.

As people this is something that has never happened before, it has practically turned the world upside down. It has been challenging, trying, emotional times.

There have been many losses.

  • Loss of life
  • Loss of the life we once had

We have had to adapt very quickly with no preparation into a whole new way of living.

To say this has been mentally and physically challenging is an understatement.

This is for us as people

  • For NHS Staff
  • For all keyworkers
  • Families
  • Children
  • The economy

The list is endless.

Health is so important. Without our health we do not have much at all.

Our Dad was hospitalised in September 2016. He had been diagnosed with a life-threatening heart condition Infective Endocarditis an infection that started from his gums. We had never heard of this before. Our Dad sadly passed away in March 2017 after a seven month courageous battle. We have a topic on:

This blog has been inspired by our journey. Our journey of unknowns that have made us realise how important it is for the need of awareness, awareness of matters that could make the difference between possibly being misdiagnosed, the difference between being able to make informed decisions, the difference between ensuring your wishes are granted. We have topics on:

For these reasons, This is why one year into the UK’s second lockdown we felt it was appropriate to once again do a topic about this.
