An NGO SOS Children’s Village, celebrated Mother’s Day in Hojai with a day long programme on Thursday. Mothers Day is celebrated in India on May 13.
‘No Children is Poor, Who has a loving Mother’ was the slogan of the programme.
Dr. Aparna Singh wife of Hojai Deputy Commissioner Manvendra Pratap Singh was the Chief Guest and Nagaon Child Welfare Committee Chairperson Anwara Khatun was the Guest of Honour.
Speaking on the occasion, Dr. Aparna Singh said, “Mother is a small word, but it has a deeper meaning which we cannot express in words. Mother is an idol of God. For a mother every child is equal.”
Emphasizing on the role played by a mother in a child’s life, Dr. Aparna Singh further said, “Mothers lay foundation stone in a child’s life.”
She requested the mothers present to inculcate their child to work, not only chase success in life.
Dr Singh appreciated the SOS Child’s Village initiative.
A total of 19 mothers, 8 aunts and 10 retired mothers of SOS Children’s Village were honoured on the occasion.
Children performed during the programme to show their love and affection for their mother.
