“God answered my prayers”
In Matana in southwest Burundi, Lyduine is a grandmother and mother with a lot to be proud of. She learned to read through her Mothers Union programme, built a business and has managed not only to put her children through school, but support them into the careers of their dreams. Now her sons have families of their own, and her daughter, grandchild and Lyduine share a harmonious life at home.
This Mothering Sunday, you can help families support each other and develop their relationships.
“I have four grandchildren God answered my prayers as my firstborn son finished school and is now in the police, another son finished university and is a doctor now. All my children have finished university. My daughter got pregnant and ran away, but after a time she came home. I took care of her child while she finished school, and now we live peacefully together.”
