Today is Mother’s Day for Syrian mothers and children in Softex Camp, Greece

For many of us, our mothers represent strength, selflessness and love; a hand to support us and guide us through tough times.
We can’t imagine the resilience and devotion that women have needed to carry their families from war-torn Syria, across treacherous seas to the hardship of life in Greek refugee camps.
In Syria, and today in Softex camp in Northern Greece, Mother’s Day is celebrated on the 21st March. Our brilliant partners InterVolve have helped mark the occasion with dancing, art and a surprise card presentation from the camp’s children to their mothers.
In the shadow of the refugee crisis across Europe, celebrations like this help bring light. They celebrate the remarkable love and fortitude of mothers as they support their families through these difficult times.
