Rwanda first lady Mrs Jeannette Kagame Calls for church leaders and members of their congregations to uphold family values and pay particular attention to the most vulnerable ones in the community.
She said Sunday 31 July 2016 during Mothers Union Rwanda golden jubilee held at Kibagabaga, Anglican Parish of Gasabo Diocese.
Mrs Kagame noted that a good family allows children to live happily to exercise their full potential, consequently acting as a backbone of a more prosperous and peaceful nation.
“You have done great exploits, especially when it comes to fostering family values; because we all know that building a good home can be compared to making heaven on earth”. She noted during 50 years anniversary.
She added that when couples live in peace, with each one equally fulfilling their responsibilities; the family gains a strong foundation, able to withstand life challenges.
Lynne Tembey, the Mothers’ Union Worldwide president, encouraged the celebrants to keep doing well in their communities, for the transformation of everybody.
Their main focus has revolved around upholding family values through marriage counseling; improving maternal and child health and nutrition awareness campaigns.
Mothers’ Union was established worldwide in 1876 by Mary Sumner and in Rwanda in 1965, and now has 24,450 members across 11 Rwandan dioceses of the Anglican Church.
