Angola: MPLA Backs Solutions to Build a Strong Nation

Luanda — MPLA stressed the importance of the union of family members to build a strong nation capable to deal with the problems of family break-up and ensure recovery of moral and civic values.

The ruling party's stance was highlighted Saturday by its deputy leader, Luísa Damião, at the end of a ceremony held by the party's women wing (OMA), ahead of the International Family Day.

Luísa Damião said that everyone should work on united families and empowerment of women, in order to reduce poverty.

According to her, women are at the heart of the education of Angolan families and play a key role in search for solutions to many problems affecting households.

She urged for the culture to denounce the practice of domestic violence and sexual abuse.

The party leader recognised the role of churches in reviving the families, adding that it is from household structure where many have forged their values.

The meeting was attended by the secretary general of OMA Joana Tomás, female representatives of religious organisations and members of the civil society.
