Honor Thy Mother
May 7, 2019
This Sunday marks Mother’s Day. If nothing else, many mothers hope to sleep in and not have to make breakfast. Some can expect bouquets of flowers, endearing cards, baskets of fruit or chocolate. At a minimum, many will receive the well wishes and affection of their children. There are any number of ways to show your mother your love and appreciation.
This Mother’s Day, Embrace Relief offers you yet another method, one which will make a difference. In honor of your mother, we ask you to consider making a donation to improve the lives of those in the developing world. Through Embrace Relief’s Mother’s Day 2019 campaign, donors may bestow one of two gifts:
Worldwide, over two million people suffer from cataracts and related complications. $100 is all it costs to restore someone’s sight. Contributions help mobilize physicians, so they can conduct cataracts surgeries, as well as routine health screenings.
According to a survey conducted by Unicef, 9 million orphans reside in Sub-Saharan Africa. These vulnerable children are deprived of affection, adequate nutrition and an education, all of which are necessary for proper development and a productive future. Contributions to this branch of the campaign will go toward basic needs, medical services and providing an education.
You could show your mother no greater recognition than by expanding opportunities for those in need in her honor. Furthermore, these projects promote several of the United Nations’ 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Namely, they advance Goals 1, 2, 3, 4 and 6: No Poverty, Zero Hunger, Good Health and Well-Being, Quality Education and Clean Water and Sanitation, respectively.
Together, we will improve the lives of mothers and children in the developing world. In so doing, they gain the means to attain self-sufficiency for themselves, their families and their communities.
