Mother’s Day 2022: Italy with mothers in Ukraine who fight for their children

NEW YORK, MAY 8 – On Mother’s Day, an anniversary of a date born in the name of peace, the thoughts of the Italian Permanent Mission to the UN goes out to all mothers around the world, but especially to the “brave mothers in Ukraine who are fighting for their lives and the lives of their children.” This message was conveyed today on the Mission account on Twitter.

“As we celebrate Mother’s Day 2002, our thoughts go to all mothers around the world where the fallouts of violence and climate change are still a threat to their survival and rights“, the message reads.

In the United States, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the second Sunday in May. The holiday was established in the early 1900s through the efforts of Anna Jarvis, a pacifist who, as a young woman, cared for wounded soldiers on both sides of the Civil War. Together with another activist, suffragette Julia Ward Howe, Jarvis mobilized popular sentiment for the creation of a “Mother’s Day for Peace” in which mothers would demand that their husbands and sons no longer be killed in war.
