South Africa’s healthcare workers have shouldered the brunt of the pandemic, with long hours working in difficult circumstances to care for those worst afflicted by Covid-19. To thank them, the Flight Centre Travel Group is giving away four holidays for two, in Zanzibar. But they need you to nominate the healthcare workers who you think need this most.

Sue Garrett, Flight Centre Travel Group General Manager Product and Marketing, explains, “It’s a Flight Centre tradition each year to send out a fun April Fool’s Day communication but this year we wanted to do things a little differently. While there is no way we can adequately say thank you to every one of our healthcare workers for their selfless acts of service during this global crisis, we wanted to do what we could. Thanks to Mango Airlines, Zanzibar Tourism and Fumba Beach Lodge, we could come together to give a total of four healthcare workers a chance to each win an incredible, relaxing trip for two to Zanzibar.”

She adds, “We want to hear your inspirational stories of healthcare workers who have gone above and beyond in the call of duty during these challenging times. These could include community healthcare workers, paramedics, nurses, doctors and medical staff caring for COVID-19 patients.”
