Happy Mothers’ Day

A Gift more than Flowers

To be a mother is a role which merits honour, appreciation and love all year around. We show our admiration for mothers by way of flowers and words of affirmation, a warm embrace and a longer than usual chat on the phone.

Many mothers around the world face economic hardship, lack of medical care and lack of opportunity to provide for their own families. Mothers juggle several responsibilities including domestic roles, community involvement and the like. Some have to manage all on their own.

Here are 5 ways YOU can help alleviate some of the hardships mothers around the world face every day.
