Inspired by Gal Gadot’s recent viral video, South African doctors on the front-line of the COVID-19 pandemic are lending their voices to “Imagine”.


South Africa (28 March 2020) – “Thuma Mina” means “send me” – the COVID-19 pandemic is the most definitive “Thuma Mina” moment for our country. Never before in the history of our democracy has our country been confronted by such a severe situation; but, it is a situation which we will be able to overcome if we work together.

Across our country, people and organisations have offered to help, and the Solidarity Response Fund is a vehicle that has been set up to facilitate this.

Inspired by Gal Gadot’s “Imagine” video, doctors from across South Africa decided to use their voices to try to raise awareness about the Fund.

Gal Gadot recently gathered an array of celebrities to take part in an emotional singalong amid the ongoing coronavirus pandemic. The “Wonder Woman” actress was joined by over 20 celebrities including Natalie Portman, Will Ferrell, and Amy Adams to belt out John Lennon’s “Imagine”.

And South Africa now have our own version with our very own superheroes… the doctors and nurses who are at the front-line of this pandemic.

“We as Medical Doctors from The Republic of South Africa, who will be of service to our nation during the 21 day lockdown period, are raising awareness in an effort to raise funds for the “Solidarity Fund”.

We humbly appeal to our fellow South Africans to PLEASE STAY HOME and to join in our efforts to help those affected and aid in combating this pandemic by contributing whatever you can to”
