This year's Mothers Day was celebrated differently by the Anglican Diocese of Southern Malawi. They took time to share love with women living with HIV/AIDS and those who have been affected. Diocesan Bishop, the Rt Revd James Tengatenga led the Mothers Union in ministering to those affected and sharing Eucharist with them at the Holy Church in Blantyre, Malawi.
Bishop Tengatenga encouraged the Mothers Union to begin income-generating activities to raise funds to help AIDS orphaned children and widows who he said were most affected. He advised the women to teach unmarried women abstinence since it was the surest way of checking the spread of AIDS.
It is estimated that up to one million people out of a population of 10 million are infected by HIV in Malawi, with many having developed full-blown AIDS.
