Even under normal conditions, mothers face expectations that often defy science and reality. But now, with the COVID-19 pandemic, mothers are under increasing economic pressures. They are struggling with access to health care, social support and growing unpaid care responsibilities. This Mother's day, we celebrate the extraordinary strength, resilience and unconditional love that defines motherhood. We salute mothers around the world for shouldering the burden of the pandemic.
Mothers around the world are doing the impossible every day, but they shouldn't be expected to. Support our efforts to bring better healthcare to the most vulnerable mothers.
