For all that we are, we owe to our mothers. On mothers’ day, MDCRC honors mothers of the Duchenne children. To make this occasion special, MDCRC organized mothers’ day celebrations at Arya Vaidya Pharmacy, Coimbatore. As part of this event, a session on “Refreshing the spirits” was conducted by Mr. Mohan, ASHA Counseling and Training Services, Coimbatore. It helped the mothers to re-invent and rejuvenate themselves. Forty mothers of DMD children attended the function which was filled with fun and activities.
Following this, we felicitated mothers of DMD children. Dr. B. R. Lakshmi, Director, MDCRC welcomed the gathering. Padmashree Dr. P. R. Krishnakumar, Managing Director, Arya Vaidya Pharmacy, chief patron of the event, paid rich tributes to the mothers of DMD children. Mr. Marabin Mainthan Muthiah, Editor, Namadhu Nambikkai, guest of honour, praised the mothers for the dedication, commitment, love and care they shower on these unfortunate children. The most scintillating moment was the presence and talk delivered by Sri Balarishi Viswashirasini, Sri Viswashirasini Balapeedam, Coimbatore, who was also the chief guest. She spoke on the compassion, patience and selflessness of the mothers and blessed the gathering. In a brief feedback, mothers appreciated the gesture of MDCRC in organizing this program. The mothers were honored with two issues of Namathu Nambikkai magazine (April and May 2014) and Mr. Muthiah offered to give a year-long subscription free for the mothers.
