Mother2Mother - network for vulnerable mothers

by Romi's Way
Mother2Mother - network for vulnerable mothers

Hello friend,

Thank you again for supporting our Mother2Mother project! We are excited to share, that after a few months of break (as we took the decision to support Ukrainian orphans and deciated our personnel and funding resources for that), we are now delighted to report that 2023 will be BIG for our mother-to-mother network. We have secured funds for a part-time coordinator to look after the network, its members and the contecxt for 12-months from 1st February 2023 onwards. With a dedicated person in place, we are aiming to engage with our mama-community effectively, aiming to have at least 200 member-profiles (currently 64) on the network, and ensure the network has a rich source of information to share (reading materials & courses - all free for the members), and facilitiating opportunities for the mamas to chat for peer support.

Watch this space for 2023 - please pass the word to any mother who would like to connect with other mothers, either as a one who has 'seen it all' and wants to help others, or as someone who is overwhelmed by challenges mamahood& our demanding world can create.

For now, we thank you sincerely for making this possible, and look forward to building the network forward from here.

Kind regards,
Sari Bernardo - CEO, Romi's Way

Dear friend,

Firstly, we again sincerely thank you for your support and kindness to support mothers to empower themselves.

Our Mother2Mother online platform is now completed and set up, having language options in English and Portuguese. Before we are publishing the platform (in September 2022), we are seeking materials that would already be translated to Ukrainian, in order to support many mothers in need and been overwhelmed by the Ukrainian crisis. We truly feel being a mother is the hardest job in the world, and doing this in a conflict setting is unbelievably challenging.

Why we all need to invest on mothers around the world, is because mothers are the engines fuelling our future generation with love, values, skills, compassion and presence that will be imprinted to children's lives forever. Investing on mothers, means investing on future of our planet and all live on it.

With this, we encourage you to support, empower and love all mothers around you,

With warm wishes and thanks

Dear Friend,

Our team has been working hard to connect with organisations in Poland who are working with Ukrainian mothers and children, and who would be able to provide materials in Ukrainian language to the Mother2Mother network. This network is to connect mothers globally (currently materials are collected in English and Portuguese, and now additionally in Ukranian) and to provide learning mateirals related to motherhood, child care, women's health and coping as a mother in these challenging times we are living. It also allows mothers to connect and chat in safe, non judgemental enviroment and get peer support from eath other.

We are hoping to publish the network in May 2022, and are now working hard to collect essential materials to support Ukrainian mothers to cope with the trauma, heartbreaks and challenges while raising their children.

Your support is so warmly welcomed and at this stage all support will be directed towards the translation or coordination efforts with the Polish NGO partners to gather the mateirials and then spreading the word to connect with the mothers.

Huge thanks for your kindness,

Sari Bernardo - CEO, Romi's Way

Dear Donor,

This Giving Tuesday help us support the ones with the hardest job in the world: mothers! In 2021 Romi’s Way started the Mother2Mother project to support and empower vulnerable mothers and their children from Coimbra, Portugal. We need your help to keep this project going and reach as many mothers as possible.

Many mothers are struggling to support their children and families, particularly due to the increased need for them to stay home during the COVID19 pandemic, limiting income generating opportunities, as well as opportunities to receive physical and mental support. Next year we aim to reach 200 mothers in need and their families. But we can only do it with your help! 
This November 30th, be the hope these mothers need!
Best regards,
Romi's Way Team

Greetings friend!

I hope this finds you well, enjoying the autumn season.

We are delighted to inform that our dear Mother2Mother programme received support from RiotGames and VALORANT (via GlobalGiving) and from the lovely players who took part on the games and donated towards our planned project to establish an online based platform, a membership platform for vulnerable mothers. Thanks to you, and to these individuals and companies, we are now able to set this platform up!

We are currently collecting offers for the set online set up and are designing the content that will go in. We are expecting the platform to be in place by end of February 2022- and cannot wait to share the link with you also once it is up and running!

I take this opportunity to thank you again for supporting this very important project, supporting mothers who are victims of abuse, rape, human trafficking or who are suffering from mental or physical disabilities  and/or excluded from societies. All mothers deserve support in order to raise a lovely generation of healthy and happy children.

With gratitude and well wishes for the beautiful autumn season,

Sari Bernardo 
CEO - Romi's Way
