LOVE your wives and children, cherish them and build a safe environment for them.

Permanent secretary for women Dr Joseva Koroivueta made the comment while speaking to villagers of Nawailevu in Bua.

His team visited the village for the declaration of zero-tolerance of violence against women and children.

Dr Koroivueta thanked them for accepting the program, which meant that men realised the importance of valuing women.

He urged fathers to work with their wives to promote unity in their families.

Dr Koroivueta said the days of ill-treating women were over.

He told the villagers it was time to work together for the good of everyone.

The men of Nawailevu were also reminded that women were created to be loved and not to be abused.

The women were also reminded to obey and submit to their husbands as God intended.

Dr Koroivueta said God made women to be helpers to their husbands. He asked the women to also love and cherish their husbands.
