KUALA LUMPUR, Aug 16 2010 (Bernama) -- The prime minister's wife, Datin Seri Rosmah Mansor, on Monday called on the wives and family members of military personnel, who are on duty during the Aidilfitri, to be patient and remain strong.

She said as a wife herself, she could understand their feeling.

"Believe me, I had been in the same situation when my husband (Datuk Seri Najib Tun Razak), during his time as the defence minister, had to leave me in Rome because he wanted to celebrate Hari Raya with our soldiers serving under the United Nations in Bosnia Herzegovina.

"On his way home, the helicopter which was to fly him back was delayed for about two hours because a member of his delegation went missing.

"I was so worried and the two-hour time went by so slowly that it felt like 20 days," she said at a ceremony to present Aidilfitri contributions to military personnel at the Defence Ministry here Monday.

A total of 15,000 packs containing Hari Raya cookies, vitamins and sarongs, donated by various parties including Bakti, were handed over at the ceremony.

Rosmah is the president of Bakti or the Welfare Association of Wives of Ministers and Deputy Ministers.

Defence Minister Datuk Seri Ahmad Zahid Hamidi said the total contribution for the armed forces this year was RM1.85 million in cash and kind.

Also present were the deputy prime minister's wife Puan Sri Norainee Abdul Rahman, who is Bakti deputy president, and Chief of Defence Forces General Tan Sri Azizan Ariffin.
