Let's Celebrate Mother’s Day

Mother’s Day is an occasion and opportune moment for everyone to reflect, remember and to celebrate the superwoman of our lives. This year, Mother’s Day celebration might be different for families in Singapore, as we continue our fight against the COVID-19 pandemic. Yet, this makes it all the more important to celebrate this special day, and pay tribute to our mothers for their resilience in keeping our families safe and well.

This Mother’s Day, Families for Life would like to invite and encourage all viewers to celebrate and honour the contributions and sacrifices of our mothers. Read up to find out how you can show appreciation and commemorate the occasion with your family, and join us for an exciting line-up of online programmes too!

As we approach Mother's Day, let us pay tribute to mothers, new & seasoned.
A mom's strength lies in her ability to choose love, again and again.

Happy Mother's Day!
