Mothers play a crucial role in strengthening families and communities around the world. Every year, we honor them by celebrating Mother’s Day and this year, the day was observed on May 14th. On this day, family members show appreciation to their mothers through acts of gift giving and sharing messages of affection.
Many countries globally observe this day on the second Sunday of the month of May. It is a special day when mothers are appreciated and acknowledged for the role they play through motherhood. Although the celebrations vary depending on different cultures, the essence is the safe; recognizing mothers and showing them gratitude for their sacrifices.
It is also a day to highlight the challenges mothers endure to raise families and rally support for them on that journey. At Global Peace Women, we celebrate this day especially with our belief in the power of women as pillars of strengthening families and building blocks of healthy societies. Mothers possess unique and intrinsic qualities that help in nurturing ideal families.
