First Lady honours mothers at GPHC
- six Mother’s Day babies
First Lady Deolatchmee Ramotar yesterday presented gifts to 60 mothers during a visit to the Georgetown Public Hospital Corporation (GPHC) yesterday.
The gifts were in honor of all the mothers present at the hospital’s Maternity Ward for Mother’s Day.
Among those who received gifts were Onika Persaud, Sandy Narine, Latoya Blair, Clara Abrams, and Onika Persaud.
Persaud, a first time mother, gave birth to a healthy baby boy. She said she is very delighted to be a mother and receiving a gift from First Lady also made the occasion special. Sandy Narine, who gave birth to a baby girl, said the feelings of becoming a mother are “wonderful and amazing.”
Six of the women gave birth yesterday. Onika Persaud and Clara Abrams delivered the first Mother’s day babies. They gave birth to baby boys. The other four were Beverly Dally, Sahodra Persaud, Jennifer Williams and Tanifa.
The mothers also received gifts from Teddies, Qualfon and Cheekies.
In a comment with this newspaper, First Lady Deolatchmee Ramotar said that these babies are our “tomorrow, they are our future” and their mothers must be honored for giving birth to those beautiful babies.
She added “without these mothers there is no tomorrow for Guyana that is why we have to honor them.”
Mrs. Ramotar said she will continue to make these donations annually once she is the First Lady, and even if she is not, once she can afford it, she will contribute to the mothers on this special day.
