On International Nurses Day 2021, we continue to show our support to nurses by renewing this wave of Lancôme care package donations, to be delivered directly to hospitals in each country. We hope this small gesture will bring them a moment of comfort and self-care.

A print campaign will launch on International Nurses Day via an outdoor display on L’Oreal buildings around the world. A social campaign will launch via the dedicated hashtag #ShowYourGratitude to mobilize communities to show their own support and gratitude for nurses in their area and worldwide.
