The winners were selected by the most likes and reactions to their mother’s picture post.

The winners were Valelia Setefano, Ruta Sua, Eleelesa Reti, Ana Alapati and Ana Sekone, each received a smart phone and a cash prize.

Vodafone Samoa’s Chief Executive Officer, Satish Sharma, said that mothers are the solid rock in any household and they are the life in every family.

“Without mums we simply cannot operate,” he said.

He added that their company decided that this competition will help all the mothers of Samoa to let their hair down and enjoy the weeks leading up to Mother’s Day.
