About The Foundation

  • florenceThe founder came about this name to give recognition to late Florence Nightingale for her contribution to what the world knows today as “CARE GIVER”. She pioneered the work of nursing where she came to prominence during Crimean war. She was dubbed “The lady with the Lamp” after her habit of making rounds at night. She later laid the foundation of professional nursing with the establishment in 1860 of her nursing school of St Thomas’ Hospital in London, the first secular nursing school in the world, now part of Kings College London.
