Kenyan Nanny’s emotional departure in Lebanon goes viral

Kenyan nanny, Rosie, widely known as Rozah Rozalina Samson, has become an internet sensation due to a poignant farewell as she departed from her job in Lebanon to return to her home country. Responsible for the care of four children, Rosie’s departure was far from ordinary.

The emotional farewell was captured in a TikTok video shared by the children’s parents, Maria and Cataleya. At the airport, a heart-wrenching scene unfolded as the twins, reluctant to part with Rosie, bid her a tearful adieu.

The deeply emotional moments, where tears flowed freely from both the children and Rosie, created a touching tableau that captured the attention of onlookers and resonated with viewers worldwide.

Despite assurances of her eventual return, the parents found it challenging to separate the children from Rosie. The youngsters clung tightly to their beloved nanny, leaving an unforgettable impression on the departure scene.

In expressing their gratitude and affection, the parents struggled to pry the children away from Rosie. They conveyed their appreciation, acknowledging Rosie’s significant role in the family, saying, “Thank you, Rosie, for caring for my babies like they’re yours.”

In the days leading up to her departure, the family marked Rosie’s birthday with a lavish celebration, underscoring the close bond they shared. The father, expressing profound gratitude, commented, “Thank you so much. You are a great person and you are part of our family.” He earnestly urged Rosie to ensure her return, emphasizing, “We can’t survive without you.”

The heartwarming video gained immense attention in Kenya, amassing millions of views. Social media was inundated with messages of support and admiration for Rosie’s kindness towards the children.

This narrative stands in stark contrast to the often grim stories told by many employed in the Middle East. While some Kenyans working as domestic staff in the region endure mistreatment and abuse, Rosie’s experience and the genuine affection shown by her employers highlight a positive and different aspect of such relationships.
