‘Mother Of The Country’

The Minister for Women, Children and Poverty Allevation, Rosy Akbar received one of the best Mother’s Day gifts yesterday.

It came from the children of the Methodist Dilkusha Home at Davuilevu, Nausori, when Ms Akbar, on Mother’s Day yesterday, visited the orphanage and donated food and gift hampers. Home superintendent Deaconess Leba Laveti said the children, in a song and personal exchanges with Ms Akbar, described her as, “the mother of the country”.

“My children call her the mother of the country,” Deaconess Laveti said.

She said the compliment was made when Ms Akbar visited the children on a day set aside for mothers.

“They looked forward to meet the minister. They were happy when they were told about the visitation. They all waited for the minister to arrive.”

She said the children sang songs for the minister and welcomed her with flowers.

Ms Akbar said the visit was part of Government’s love in providing care and support to Fijian children.

“Children are part of our community and they will be given love, care and support from the ministry. We will always be there for them. If you miss your parents, give us a call. We would love to spend time with you and share your sorrows,” Ms Akbar said.

“I am happy to be with you and you can count me as your mother.

“You all are special children of God. I thank the Dilkusha Home management for taking care of children. We all should love children equally and take care of them,” she said. Deaconess Laveti said Ms Akbar made the children happy yesterday.

“They needed love, care and affection. They are wonderful children. We cannot ignore them. They are special gift from God.” she said.

The home is run by the Methodist Church in Fiji and Rotuma.
