Each year, Mother’s Day is celebrated globally on the second Sunday in May to honour the important role that mothers play in the home, the community and in professional spaces. It recognizes the seminal role of mothers in the life of every citizen and zeroes in on her role as part of an immediate family.
Digicel Foundation, as part of its mandate to help build stronger communities, treated mothers in non-traditional jobs who may well be overlooked by the public, to a pre-Mother’s Day Brunch in collaboration with our partners at the Jamaica National Foundation, Grace Kennedy, Early Childhood Commission and the Ministry of Local Government and Community Development.
Each partner identified one mother on staff who they believe deserves a “Mothers’ Day Off” from work. The mothers were treated to brunch and gifts courtesy of Café Neita and Deaf Can! Coffee on Friday May 12 at Pheonix Central on Pheonix Avenue in Kingston.
They were also serenaded by the 2016 Digicel Rising Star winner, Elton Earlington.
