WATCH: EMOTIONAL Amy Sangha, nurse: A covid19 Survivor's Inspiring Story ♥ #TreeofGiving

Amy Sangha, a nurse of 20 years at St. Paul's hospital tested positive for COVID-19 in Spring 2020 during the height of the pandemic panic. While isolating in her home she came upon a brilliant idea of the "Tree of Giving" where she asked her family, friends and community members, to tie ribbons to a tree in her yard.

Ribbons were meant to keep her spirits up and give her hope for a complete recovery. She vowed to donate money for every ribbon that was tied. Her initial donation of $6400 to 3 organizations Burnaby Hospital Foundation, Doctors Without Borders,and Care Canada- a Unicef organization that works to support the empowerment of Women's and Girl's for Health and Education has slowly blossomed to become over $60,000.

She was treated at Burnaby General Hospital for COVID-19. Her story is one of hope and resilience. Amy Sangha shared her story with Darpan's Ish Sharma.
