Amid enthusiastic smiles, in a friendly atmosphere President Martelly on his arrival at the community restaurant of Bois Neuf, told hundreds of mothers "I'm glad to associate myself with your Day today. I salute your courage. Because you are the pillar of the family. The Prime Minister, Laurent Lamothe, the Minister of Social Affairs and Labour, Charles Jean Jacques and all my Administration have for you a very special thought today."
In addition to this generous gesture, Mother's Day was celebrated this year with a series of activities organized in the country by the Administration Martelly-Lamothe.

Minister Auguste promised to continue to advocate with the judicial authorities in order to facilitate the progress of certain records, noting that the Government was aware of the situation of prolonged pretrial detention and that it had worked hard to solve this problem by reactivating among others the Office of control of prolonged pretrial detention (BUCODEP).
In addition, 1,000 baskets of solidarity were distributed to Laboule 24 (communal section of Petion-Ville) to mothers, in partnership with the Association of Women dedicated of Thomassin (AFADETH) "It is time that our mothers ease to live in poverty and extreme poverty. It is time to put an end to this situation of poverty in the country," declared Minister Auguste which reaffirmed the Government's commitment to work towards the eradication of extreme poverty in the country. She also announced that the sub-program "Ti Manman Cheri" of the National Social Assistance "Ede Pèp" program will soon stop in Thomassin.
