MASKING UP WITH MY MOTHER
Zoey Wandera, 11, Kenya
My mother is a nurse in the local hospital. During the COVID pandemic, she has been teaching and educating children about protecting themselves against contracting the virus. This artwork depicts a mother teaching her daughter how to wear a mask correctly. The mother explains that even though they live as a family, they might not know whether one is infected or not and therefore they will need to always wear a mask and wash their hands with clean water and soap. In the artwork, the mother is encouraging her daughter not to be scared about the virus, but to take precaution. A mother’s greatest gift of love to her daughter is reassurance, even when she knows that, as a nurse, she has the highest risk of contracting COVID and possibly infecting her family. Yet, she still carries out her duty as a nurse with love and extends the same love to her family. She is a courageous and strong woman.
