Sweden: LSA honors mothers for important role in society

Mothers from different backgrounds were on Saturday honored by the Liberian Swedish Association (LSA) during a program held in Stockholm, the Swedish capital.

“LSA recognizes the steadfast dedication and support of all mothers to their families and those in need,” noted the association’s president David Ford. 

While the Mothers’ Day program recognized the important role of mothers generally, Ford added that it paid particular attention to giving flowers to ten mothers based on overwhelming recommendations from beneficiaries of their kind gestures from the Liberian community in Sweden.
The special honorees were Musu Alice Kou Joseph (Big Mama), Winifred Nicol Sandy, Peagie Foday, Jacqueline Opwapo Mensah and Helen Joaque. Others were Elizabeth Jusu Bah, Patricia Idoigeh, Amin Jabateh, Angeline Davies King and Regina O.A. Jackson.
It was an honor for the LSA to host a mother’s day event and honor mothers from diverse backgrounds (Liberia, Kenya, Sierra Leone and Nigeria), “I’ll like to congratulate the honorees and encourage them to keep up the wonderful job,” Ford said in a Facebook post.
