"My mom is my hero." Such is an expression widely uttered by many because mothers simply are the superwomen of our lives.
A week before the 2013-2014 school year started, moms from all over the country took their maternal duties from their homes to public schools for the Zonrox Linizkwela Balik Eskwela Clean-up drive.
Fueled by bayanihan and concern for their children, moms flocked to public schools to clean up classrooms, bathrooms, and other facilities to ensure a healthier and more inspiring learning environment for their children. They went on sweeping, scrubbing, and wiping classroom walls, corridor floors, and comfort rooms for an entire day, all the while exchanging light chatter about the pleasures and trials of motherhood.
"Sumali ako sa ganitong gawain para … maipakita ko sa aking mga anak na nag-aaral sa ekswelahang ito na ako ay kanilang kaagapay at kasanib sa pagtulong sa paaralan," shared Nanay Liza, a mother of two students at the Pampanga National High School. "Dahil nakikita ng mga anak ko na ako ay nakiki-isa sa kanila, nagiging mas magaan para sa kanila ang tumulong din sa kanilang paaralan," she added. (What motivated me first and foremost to join this clean-up drive is to show support to my children who go to this school. Also, when they see that I am one with their school’s mission, it becomes an example for them to follow suit in helping.)
Amalia Lustre, whose child studies at the Rosa L. Susano Elementary School in Novaliches, had the following to say about her reasons for volunteering: "Nakikipag-ugnayan at nakikipag-tulungan kami (mga nanay) sa mga teachers at sa school para maging malinis ang kapaligiran ng paaralan at maging ligtas ang aming mga anak sa sakit."
She was also thankful for the tremendous help extended by Zonrox with its donation of cleaning products, saying "Nakakatulong ang Zonrox sa bahay at school pang-disinfect; natitiyak namin na ang mga mikrobyo ay namamatay dito (sa galing ng Zonrox)." (We work together and coordinate with the school and its teachers so that we can make their surroundings clean, and keep our children safe from illnesses when classes start. Zonroxis definitely of help to that cause; being perfect for disinfecting and killing germs and bacteria.)
Homemakers and working moms like Nanay Liza, Amalia and all the others who gathered during the Zonrox Linizkwela Clean-up Drive have shown that their concern for their children is not limited by the bounds of their home, but extends even beyond it. A mother’s love such as theirs is the kind that hopes to give the best opportunity for the sake of their children’s future.
In the same way, Zonrox Bleach, as a partner to these supermoms, believes in creating an inspiring and clean environment for our youth, especially as another school year begins.
