Keywords: Mother's Day
Every day, we hear women's stories of the threats they face, of the violence they confront, of the obstacles to health and happiness that an unjust world throws before them. On Mother's Day, we want to celebrate the many mothers we work with around the world who overcome these obstacles with tenacity and bravery.
From now until Mother's Day, we'll share some of these women's stories, from six of the communities where MADRE works, on our blog and website. And with each story, we'll give you a way to join forces with these indomitable women, who are working each day to make the world better than it was the day before.
You can make a difference in the life of more than one mother this year by giving a gift through MADRE to a special mother in your life.
With every gift you make this Mother's Day, we will send a beautiful card to the person of your choice, telling them about the important work that you are supporting in their name.
Your donation or purchase will support women around the world who are combating violence, providing disaster relief and fighting hunger and malnutrition, and it will equip these women to become leaders in their communities and fight for change.
