What are the main qualities of motherhood that Mother’s Day celebrates? A mother’s unconditional love and selflessness.
ChildFund has the perfect way to honor your mother this year: Combine the usual sweet Mother’s Day gifts — breakfast in bed, wobbly crayon drawings for the fridge door, flowers — with a gift that mirrors her giving spirit.
|This layette includes clothing, a blanket, a diaper bag and other care items for a new mother in Honduras.|
Our Gifts of Love & Hope catalog offers a wealth of items that represent specific, requested needs from the countries where we work — everything from farm animals to health care supplies to school uniforms.
Some of these gifts are specifically for mothers. For families living in poverty, sometimes a new birth is more an occasion of worry than celebration. A care kit and layette for a mother and newborn in Uganda (item #49541, $36) or a layette for a newborn in Honduras (#49539, $53) can ease the stress of that transition and even help support mother-child bonding in those first all-important moments.
Of course, motherhood extends far beyond childbirth — who was it who said, “All mothers are working mothers”? In developing countries, where unemployment is extremely high, mothers must often become entrepreneurs simply to ensure that their children have enough food to eat. Bolivia has asked for two items to help mothers do exactly that: cosmetology start-up kits (#49511, $203) and an industrial oven (#49509, $303).
Our Gifts of Love & Hope catalog also offers many other entrepreneurial items, from farm animals to sewing equipment.
SPECIAL OFFER: For each order of $100 or more, ChildFund will donate one mosquito net to protect children from mosquitoes that may transmit malaria — and what mother wouldn’t love that?
