Qatari employer appreciates Kenyan nanny in newspaper advert

An Arab mother has taken to the press to pay for advertisement space to appreciate a Kenyan nanny for taking care of her autistic son.

Mariam al Rashdi, who lives in Doha, placed an advert appreciating Elizabeth Kamoca for taking care of her autistic son, Karim, for the last two years as the nanny’s stay in Qatar nears its end.

In the unique advertisement that appeared on Gulf Times Community on Wednesday, Ms Mariam said:

“This is a note from me, as a mother of a young man with special needs to say thanks for being an angel that God sent to help my son and support him. Thanks for loving him, accepting him, understanding him, and help him develop by teaching him. I am sure Kenya and the entire world will be proud of you one day. God will reward you for taking the best care of my son.”

At the end of the advert Ms Kamoca’s employer wished her well in her future endeavours as she is set to complete her two years of working for her.

Kenyans living in Qatar, who commented on posts made in a page named Elizabeth and Karim created on Tuesday in honor of the two, lauded the family saying it was very kind of them to appreciate their nanny’s work.
