AS THEY have witnessed the struggles and sacrifices of their mothers in the front lines against Covid-19, some daughters of healthcare workers in Cebu intend to be of service to their mothers during their special day on Sunday, May 9, 2021.
Kassandra Daitol said she will give her mother, Giselle, a good massage and treat her to a whole day of rest.
Daitol, 22, and her siblings will take over the household chores on Mother’s Day, which is celebrated every second Sunday of May.
When the Covid-19 pandemic broke out in Cebu in March last year, Daitol’s parents were working as nurses. Thinking about the risks and challenges her parents face, Daitol could not think of anything else but appreciation for her parents.
Her mother Giselle, though, recently resigned from the service for health and personal family reasons. Despite her mother’s resignation, Daitol said she remains proud of her as she was among the medical workers deemed “capeless heroes” as they played a big role in saving the lives of Covid-19 patients.
“We don’t have our own personal vehicles. But this didn’t make them hesitate to work and serve. They work with worries and confusion in their hearts and minds, but they just want to cooperate and help the people. For that, I’ll be forever proud of them,” Daitol said.
