Hero nurses and doctors

With your support, nurses and doctors have received 100% all-natural Shea hand salves


New York State Assembly Member Harvey Epstein

In April, as New York City was facing its greatest public health crisis in about a century, Kadidja reached out to my office to share her idea of Shea Healing Hands. She wanted to provide her premium hand salves to nurses and doctors at hospitals in our community. It was a great idea and reflects the community values I hold: Each of us has a role to play in a healthy community and if each of us does what she can for our community, then our community will thrive. Acts like this are so important in times of crisis, when we really did not know what would happen to the city or, for that matter, to the world. Kadidja’s help also involved delivering groceries to elderly residents of our community. She and her sons, Justin and Darius, worked alongside other volunteers, loading up boxes and carrying them to apartments in the neighborhood. In mid May, Kadidja and I delivered her hand salves to Bellevue Hospital in Manhattan, where the first coronavirus case had been detected in March. It was a meaningful contribution, particularly coming at such a difficult time for the city and the world. Contributions like this give hope and reaffirm my belief that New York City is full of strong, caring people.
