Two single fathers, Dennis Romaine of Silver Lake and Paul ‘Mobile-Man’ Bunch of Fortune, were awarded hampers from the Dominica National Council of Women (DNCW), in recognition of their role as single parents.

The presentations were made to the awardees at the DNCW office earlier this morning by Coordinator at the DNCW Josephine Dublin-Prince. Prince said that the collaborative effort, in conjunction with Caribbean Men Action Network (CARIMAN), is one that is needed in our society for both single mothers and fathers.

“We did similarly around Mother’s Day for single mothers and in our work we realized that there are also single fathers who did not just abandon their children when the mothers may have abandoned them and we really need to applaud them, need to thank them and tell them that they need to continue what they are doing,” she remarked.

Walter Greenaway of the National Men’s Forum expressed gratitude at the DNCW’s initiative to celebrate the awardees, who have made an impact in the life of their children. CARIMAN President, Thomas Holmes said that his organization is honored to have partnered with the DNCW in this initiative.

Thomas said, “Today I applaud the DNCW for this gesture, for recognizing the fathers in our midst and CARIMAN is honored by this gesture from the DNCW for acknowledging the work of these fathers.”

Bunch, a father of an 8-year-old girl and a 7-year-old boy, said, “Praise to the Almighty for the strength that I’ve got to take care of my kids because taking care of them is a situation. I want to say thanks to the DNWC.”

Romaine, also a father of two, a 7-year-old girl and 8-year-old girl, said that things are shaping up very well for him and his children and joined Bunch in thanking the DNCW for their donation.

“I’m thanking everyone for the gift that was given to me for the children. I’ve been going through a rough time with them, but things are going much better,” he said.

      Why don’t you speak to Romaine as a man or woman face to face. Perhaps he needs counselling and also he needs someone to dreq him closer to the Father who gives us all patience. Why did you have to come with this negative comment when you could just approach him. You need to let him know that power of life and death lies in the tongue. He needs to be taught the things of God. I know this guy and he has a good heart but most of us were brought up and influenced by what we were taught for example cussing our children when do not behave. Yes that is what we were taught. We were taught to say who cannot hear will feel and such the likes and we were taught to tell them this and that will happen to them not relising that we would even send them to die as well. Yes many parents are guilty of sending their disobedient children to die… But for the Lord and now we know that we have to stand in the gap and fast and pray for our disobedient children and demand that the evil forces over our children be dismantled in the their lives in the Name of Jesus who died for our sins. Our Mighty Father is greater than any other and he is able to rurn the hearts of our disobedient children.

      Romaine congratulations for being recognised and as the commenter say do not let frustration get the better of y ou. You are not alone … God is there with you but you must seek him and serve him.. Seek ye first the Kingdom nof God and his righteousness and ALL other things wil be added unto you.

      Paul also congratulations.

      Lord continue to bless those two young men and draw them closer to you so your holyspirit will manifest to them and y our gloryy will shine through them so other Fathers will draw nearer to you and be the pillar of strength and love in their children’s lives.
