Kärcher re­stores Peo­ple Power Mon­u­ment

Business World - - BULLETINS -

FOL­LOW­ING a suc­cess­ful clean-up of the Rizal Mon­u­ment last De­cem­ber, Kärcher, in part­ner­ship with the Na­tional His­tor­i­cal Com­mis­sion of the Philip­pines (NHCP), is con­duct­ing an­other restora­tive clean­ing project, this time with the beneficiary be­ing the EDSA Peo­ple Power Mon­u­ment.

Clean­ing of the said mon­u­ment started on Feb. 12 and will last un­til to­day, Feb. 15. This project is part of the com­pany’s on­go­ing clean­ing initiative to re­store na­tional his­tor­i­cal land­marks all around the world.

Lo­cated at the cor­ner of EDSA and White Plains Av­enue in Que­zon City, the Peo­ple Power Mon­u­ment is a sculp­ture de­signed by Ed­uardo Cas­trillo to com­mem­o­rate the 1986 Peo­ple Power Rev­o­lu­tion. It be­came open to the pub­lic in 1993.

The clean­ing and restora­tion of the sculp­ture is just in time for the 32nd an­niver­sary of the Peo­ple Power Rev­o­lu­tion, which will be held on Feb. 25. Sim­i­lar to Rizal Mon­u­ment restora­tion, the clean­ing pro­fes­sion­als of Kärcher are us­ing its steam clean­ing ma­chines to re­move the dirt and pollution that the me­morial has in­curred through­out the years.

Zurich Fer­nan­dez, coun­try gen­eral man­ager of Kärcher Philip­pines, said that be­ing tapped by the NHCP twice to un­der­take such a project is such a deep honor and priv­i­lege, es­pe­cially be­cause of the Peo­ple Power Mon­u­ment’s place in Filipino his­tory and for what is stands for.

“We at Kärcher are deeply hon­ored once again to work to­gether with the NHCP in this project. Stand­ing as a sym­bol of hope and bea­con of free­dom, the Peo­ple Power Mon­u­ment is one of the most en­dur­ing lega­cies of the Filipino spirit, show­ing how in the midst of tur­bu­lence and con­flict, a whole na­tion can be­come one. We as­sure ev­ery­one that we will help NHCP in any way to pro­vide the ut­most of care to the mon­u­ment,” said Mr. Fer­nan­dez.
