The Ministry of Labour and Social Protection informs of the Mother’s Week to be held in Belarus on October, 8-14. The week starts from children congratulating their mothers. Military registration and enlistment offices and military units carry out meetings with mothers – participants of the Great Patriotic War, mothers of soldiers perished during peace time while protecting their Motherland serving at peace corps in different parts of the world, as well as with mothers those sons are serving in the Army.
Celebrations in honour of Mothers are traditionally arranged by trade unions. Mothers that are having many children are to be awarded with Mother’s Orders by the heads of regional executive committees, Minsk city executive committee, city (district) executive committees during festive ceremonies. Special meetings are to be arranged with mothers of adopted children.
