Volunteers spend Mother’s Day with exchange students

Volunteers spend Mother’s Day with exchange students

The student counseling volunteers of Tzu Chi are called Tzu Chang Papa and Yi De Mama. During Mother’s Day, Tzu Chang Papa and Yi De Mama celebrate with the exchange students from India, Indonesia and Nepal together.

The exchange students from different countries have different traditions about the Mother’s Day. In Indonesia the day falls on December 22, and they thank their mothers with roses. The Nepal Mother’s Day is between late April and early May, when family members get together for celebrating. There is no traditional Mother’s Day in India, but influenced by western culture, Indian people now also celebrate Mother’s Day on the Second Sunday of May, and prepare many dishes, letting mothers take a break on that day.

A student from Indonesia expresses her gratitude to her counseling volunteer on Mother’s Day. “Thank you so much Yi De Mama, ”said Sailent Rizki Sari Simaremare.
