Members of the YPHSIG have contributed to a poem for children.

The poem, initiated by Dr Najette Ayadi O'Donnell and created in collaboration with poet Laura Mucha, involved over 40 paediatricians from across the UK. It highlights concerns that the voices of children and young people have been lost during the pandemic.

The poem is a response to 'THANK YOU' created by Laura Mucha with children across the world thanking key workers during lockdown.
