Motherhood in hostile environments

By Sari Bernardo | CEO

Hello dear friend,

We say it a lot, but every time it resonates: Being a mother is the hardest job in the world! In most times, it feels the most rewarding too, but this is the case where we feel supported and balanced to do the hardest job in the world. Imagine doing this while living in hostile environment (war or conflicts in your country or at your home - or worse, both!) or while being the single adult in your family, trying to make everyone's needs met.... Or when you are struggling with your health (physical or mental), and are so sleep deprived you hardly remember your name... Or you have no/ limited income and you are eaten by financial worries.....

Mothers are the backbone of our society, being the primary support function for children (dads are great too, but biologically they cannot replace the role of a mother). We are here to be the voice of those many exhausted, wounded, hurt, struggling, depressed, worried mamas out there, who are doing their best to support their little ones (and mostly putting their own needs last).

Since the war in Ukraine started, Romi's Way has been collecting funds to support our trusted partner in Poland, doing cross-border operations and providing food, clothing and healthcare items for 1045 orphans in Kiev. While we continue doing that with the funds we gather here, we are also acknowledging the needs of mothers living in hostile environments in Ukraine and those who are left to run their families as a single headed household while partners are fighting the war, or have lost their lives. Our heart, our thoughts of love and empowerment and our call for your support is to stand by the mamas in Ukraine, so that they can support their little ones to grow with security, warmth and joy (as much as possible) and look after their own coping and recovery too. Easier to say than do, but with your help, we have a change to support.

Thank you for your kind support so far, people like you makes our work meaningful and address and acute need that is out there in the world.

Kindest regards,

Sari Bernardo- CEO, Romi's Way
