forme les mamans a defendre leurs droit humain

les mamans sont minimisees vraiment on croit qu une maman na aucune valeur dans la societe et pourtant sans les mamas le monde humain devrai etre inexistant.comme nous sommes dans le monde civilise nous ne voulons pas etre minimise.

English translation by PulseWire member Sarah Noyce

Help mums defend their human rights.

Mums are truly undervalued. People think that a mother has no value in society, and yet without mothers the human world would not exist. As we live in the civilised world, we do not want to be undervalued or seen as unimportant.

This story was written for World Pulse’s Ending Violence Against Women Digital Action Campaign.

World Pulse believes that women's stories, recommendations, and collective rising leadership can—and will—bring an end to gender-based violence. The EVAW Campaign elicits powerful content from women on the ground, strengthens their confidence as vocal grassroots leaders, and ensures that influencers and powerful institutions hear their stories.

Motherhood

You are so right that mothers are important to all of us. And I am sorry that you see motherhood as undervalued. Certainly, there are many of us who know and understand the sacrifices and deep love required to raise children in our complicated world.

Keep believing in the value of giving our children the support and tenderness they deserve. They value it and we all benefit from it.

You are brave to express what you see. May your courage help people express their respect for mothers and the vital role they play in this world.

Be well and stay strong.

Heartbeat and Love of Mothers...

Dear Hamisi,

THANK YOU for having so much LOVE for MOTHERS in the world. YES, Mothers are one of the most important people in our lives who give life and nurturance for their children, husband and community. Mothers are the heartbeat which nourishes humanity with her unconditional love, strength and courage. Mothers have the hardest job in the world which can not be measured in monetary terms.

BRAVO to all MOTHERS and Mother Earth - we love you!

Take good care and THANK YOU for paying tribute to all MOTHERS!

With Gratitude,

Linda Ando

Children are our future

Dear Hamisi,
Thank you for posting your love and support for mothers. I believe the true value of mothers is sometimes unseen and undervalued in many countries including my own. It is sad to me that so many mothers across the world are reporting feelings of being undervalued in their role, when truly mothering has to be one of the most important roles in any society. Children are our future.
Thank you so much for posting and I look forward to hearing more from you.
Blessings,
Tina

Hamisi, It is strange isn't

Hamisi,

It is strange isn't it, that everyone has or has had a mother and yet, we are so easily overlooked by societies. Perhaps it is because we are a constant. People ignore the sky too.

I think you are wonderful for saying it because as we come together to show who and how we are and what we give the world: love, patience, sacrifice for others, tenderness, home....we are better seen.

You voice joins many of us who agree with you and say the same things.

Thank you for adding your words to this conversation.

Be well.
