Vice President and Minister of Indigenous Peoples’ Affairs Sydney Allicock sharing a moment with some of the Mothers of Moraikobai

Mother’s Day is a celebration honouring mothers, where motherhood is celebrated. Mothers around the world are shown appreciation on a designated Sunday in May each year. The same appreciation was shown to mothers of Moraikobai by Vice President and Minister of Indigenous Peoples Affairs Sydney Allicock during a recent visit to the Moraikobai community in Region Five.

The Minister in wishing the mothers of the community happy Mother’s Day in advance also contributed the sum of $20,000 towards making the day a bit more special. “My staff and visiting team would like to wish all the mothers of Moraikobai a very, very happy Mother’s Day and I am certain that you would enjoy that day”, the Minister joyfully expressed.

The money was received by mothers present at the gathering and will go towards doing something glamorous for the mothers. The mothers were all delighted and expressed gratitude for the  Mother’s Day gift from Minister Allicock.
