We speak about them every day, but who are they really? Mothers, sisters, wives, friends, caregivers, and so much more. Each frontline hero has a name and a story. 

It's Wednesday, and that means it's time for Carol Ofori's Women Crush Wednesday! Today she spoke to nurse Karmini Munusamy, who does COVID-19 testing at Stanger Nandi Clinic. This bubbly and bright woman had so much to share, and she left us with nothing but admiration for her and the amazing people she gets to work with every day.

Karmini is a mother and wife, and every day she risks herself and her family members to keep the country afloat.
