PG One and Vicks Honour Doctors and Healthcare Workers with Moving Story of Extraordinary Doctor

Creative 33 Add to collection

Partnering with Vicks in its pledge to keep Dr Bhosale’s dreams of building a children’s hospital alive, PG One captures the tale of selfless sacrifice with its third #TouchOfCare campaign

PG One and Vicks Honour Doctors and Healthcare Workers with Moving Story of Extraordinary Doctor

Publicis Groupe-owned, Power of One (PG One) and Procter & Gamble (P&G)’s Vicks have produced a four-minute film that honours the sacrifice and determination of doctors and healthcare workers fighting in the battle against Covid-19. Paying tribute to doctors in India on National Doctors’ Day 2021, the story tells the real-life extraordinary story of the late Dr Dnyaneshwar Bhosale. The tribute is part of Vicks’ third iteration of the #TouchOfCare campaign.

The film takes viewers on the inspiring journey of Dr Bhosale’s selfless acts of care, as he left no stone unturned to ensure many less fortunate children received life-saving medical attention during the pandemic. Gone too soon, Dr Bhosale left behind his wife, kids, and his dreams of building his own paediatric hospital. The film is a solemn reminder that like Dr Bhosale, hundreds of doctors lost their lives during the pandemic leaving their families and dreams behind. 

In addition to sharing Dr Bhosale’s inspiring story, Vicks has also pledged to support Mrs. Bhosale to help build a paediatric hospital in memory of her husband's extraordinary acts of care. Committed to making a meaningful difference and step up as a #ForceforGood, Vicks continues to support India’s fight against Covid-19 through P&G India’s Suraksha initiative. Under this initiative, P&G recently contributed towards one million vaccination doses for 500,000 citizens in partnership with state governments and local authorities.

Ajay Thrivikraman, CCO, global clients, Publicis Singapore commented: “Vicks Touch of Care has always been a platform to shine a spotlight on the most vulnerable communities in our society. Just over a year ago, one would hardly have expected our doctors to be among them, but this pandemic has changed everything. It has been an incredibly difficult time for doctors and their loved ones. We thought our platform could serve them at this time by sharing their story, told through the eyes of just one such family. It’s humbling to see that their care for others is more than a lifetime commitment; it is a legacy that will live on into the future.”

Himanshu Tewary, senior director and category head at Procter & Gamble said: “Our doctors have given a new meaning to humanity during these challenging times, and their selflessness deserves lifelong gratitude. Vicks #TouchOfCare is a reminder of the extraordinary acts of care, courage and bravery of each one of our doctors, those with us, and those who we have lost. As a society, it’s time to rise together and give back to our doctors’ community for all they have done for us and our loved ones by preserving their #TouchOfCare for generations to come.” 

Mrs. Priyanka Bhosale, wife of the late Dr Dnyaneshwar Bhosale shared: “It was difficult to see my husband take his last breath and my prayer then was that somehow he would receive the healing hand of care just like the one he selflessly extended to many children. I thank Vicks for bringing to light my husband’s extraordinary work and inspiring story and joining me to keep his dream of building a children’s hospital in Latur alive, so his memory and touch of care live on forever.”

In 2017, #TouchOfCare 1 showed how through care, families are formed beyond biological ties, breaking stereotypes, and highlighting how motherhood has no gender through the story of an orphan, Gayatri and her transgender mother Gauri Sawant. In 2018, #TouchOfCare 2 brought to light the story of Nisha, a girl born with Ichthyosis - a genetic skin condition who was abandoned by her biological parents at birth. Her life took a positive turn with the unconditional love and care extended by her adoptive parents.

At the time of writing, the film has already accumulated over five million views across Facebook, Instagram, and YouTube.
