#MyMomIsStrongBecause… by Zablon Murimi

Zablon Murimi, a Nuru Kenya farmer, thanks his mother, Boke, for keeping their family healthy and strong.

#MyMomIsStrongBecause she undertakes household chores perfectly like tilling our farm, cooking delicious meals for the family and caring for the young children.

My mum helps my dad in heading the family and keeps our family in good health. She ensures the family is treating drinking water, cleaning the compound, sleeps under long lasting treated nets and that all her children are fully immunized. She links us with other family members and friends.

When I was a young boy, my mum imparted in me values like leadership, kindness, integrity, honesty and patience. These values have helped me over the years to become a very responsible citizen and a better parent too. I have started instilling the same values to my children.

Truly, my mum has been contributed a lot to help me achieve my dreams!
