NAIROBI, Kenya, May 9 – Mothers at the Pumwani Maternity Hospital could not hide their joy after the Unilever Company gifted them with various goodies to appreciate them, ahead of Mother’s Day which is observed in more than 40 countries.
Mothers’ Day is a celebration that honors mothers for their contribution in the society, motherhood, maternal bonds and is held yearly every second Sunday of May in most countries.
The tradition around the world is to celebrate the day by penning heartwarming messages to their mothers while highlighting the vital roles that mothers play in the society and also appreciating them with special gifts.
This year, for mother’s day, OMO is running a campaign tagged Mikono Ya Mama. The campaign, Mikono Ya Mama seeks to appreciate the mothers, telling them that OMO cares for their hands because it is those same hands that raise us into being who we are today!
OMO decided to appreciate mothers through a special gift of the washing detergent OMO branded “MOM” to mothers with newborn babies at the Pumwani Maternity Hospital alongside other goodies ranging from soaps, towels and Vaseline Baby Jelly.
As a brand OMO is appreciated worldwide for being children-centered, encouraging parents to worry less as their children engage in outdoor activities.
“We appreciate OMO for being thoughtful and remembering mothers during this special day,” Said Stella Atumbua, who had given birth just a day ago.
“Am so happy because this is my preferred washing detergent and getting such a big pack for free feels very good,” said a delighted Purity Samson.
“I would like to encourage other mothers to use OMO because it’s good for the hands and doesn’t bleach clothes,” said Doreen Barasa, a mother of twins.
Pumwani Maternity Hospital administrator Geoffrey Mosiria who welcomed the OMO team said it was so thoughtful of them to remember mothers.
“Thanks to the OMO team for coming to gift our news mothers, this a very kind gesture from a leading laundry brand to gift our mothers to help them to take care of their young ones,” he said.
Omo connotes a play-friendly world where children can play without worrying about getting dirty as it’s a detergent known for removing tough stains. Getting dirty for children as they develop, learn and grow through rich memory-making experiences is where Omo comes in to offer a cleaning solution that delivers good results.
