Rain In Shopping Mall, located in Bolgatanga in the Upper East Region, feted over 300 mothers in the regional capital and its environs in commemoration of the Mother’s Day celebration.
The celebration, which took place at the forecourt of the mall, formed part of the corporate social responsibility of Rain In Shopping Mall. It was also to give back to society for the public support it has received over the years.
The event saw the mothers, mostly 60 and older, have enough to eat, and drink. They were also given a piece of cloth and a scarf each.
The Chief Executive Officer of Rain In Shopping mall, Albert Nyarko said the purpose of celebrating the mothers was to appreciate them for the care and suffering they went through raising children.
“Today being Mother’s Day, I am joyful, and happy being with our mothers. Mothers are blessings to us, considering the toils they went through raising us from childhood to date. There are some women whose partners run away, leaving them alone to take care of the babies all alone, and they go through the hustles to raise their children. So, motherhood is something that we should not joke with. Once they’ve cared for us, we too have to care for them.”
He used the opportunity to admonish the public, particularly the youth, to take proper care of mothers regardless of “whatever that happened in the past, we should forget about it and appreciate them and God will continue to bless us.”
With the current economic challenges that have brought many businesses to their knees, Mr. Nyarko said that could not have been an excuse for Rain In Shopping Mall not to appreciate mothers and that the mall will continue to touch lives in society.
A retired teacher and mother, Madam Dorothy Aduko thanked Rain In Shopping Mall for organising the party for mothers to mark the Mother’s Day celebration.
“We thank Rain In Shopping Mall, and by the Grace of God, God will bless them abundantly for knowing that they have mothers, and they called us together to entertain us. I am very happy, and God will surely bless them. What they have spent on us, God will give back to them a million times.”
Another mother, Madam Olivia A. Akanbange could not hide her excitement but prayed for abundant grace upon Mr. Albert Nyarko and his family.
“I am overwhelmed, may God bless them abundantly. This is the first time I am attending such an occasion and under this economy that things are very difficult to come by yet they were able to feed a good number of people. I pray that the God Lord will open more doors for them.”
The mothers had fun, dancing to some tunes from a live band’s music and creating social cohesion among themselves.
