In observation of Father’s Day tomorrow the Minister of Human Services and Services in collaboration with the Men’s Affair Bureau held an event captioned “Magnificent Man” at the Theater Guild, Parade Street, Kingston last evening.
Many fathers attended the evening that saw the raw reasoning of a father’s role in a Guyanese society.
The play featured issues that are pertinent to fatherhood. It also highlighted how aspects of manhood are stereotyped.
The play also dealt with men usage of violence as a way of resolving disagreements by fathers whom are out of control and angry.
In attendance were members of the Cabinet and other prominent individuals.
Minister Priya Manickchand said that the event is to celebrate Father’s Day, and since so many negatives things are heard of men in general of which not all is untrue, there is need to recognise the good fathers of society.
She said that there are many good fathers in Guyana whose stories go untold, even some who may have ended their relationship with their partners and remained good fathers.
Noting that with the advent of the Men’s Affair Bureau, Manickchand said many good things are being done for the men and fathers of Guyana.
The head of the Men’s Affairs Bureau (MAB), Patrick Findley, said the concept for the event was the lack of good fathers in society. However, there are good fathers who live up to their responsibilities and fatherhood.
