Maternal Mortality remains one of the most devastating tragedies of our day. It is highly preventable in most circumstances, and yet it has been one of the most widely ignored health indicators over the past decade. Around the world in virtually every country, and every socioeconomic background, mothers are dying due to inadequate health care. These rates are gradually improving in many countries (less than 1% a year and getting worse in others), but only a sustained and systematic effort will accomplish the goal of safe motherhood in any reasonable timeframe. Thankfully the collective will of the governments, philanthropist and concern citizens is finally coming together to address the health of our mothers and the future of our nations.
We at The Mother’s Monument wish to build a monument to honor those women who have died in childbirth, and stand as a tribute to their sacrifice and as a reminder of our obligation to protect the mothers of the world. As well as provide a forum for families to express their love and share their stories with the rest of the world which must never forget the sacrifice they have made and never forget the responsibility that rest on our shoulders to ensure the protection of our mothers.
Thank you for your interest in the monument. We encourage you to visit the rest of the site and contact us on ways to support the project.
To our mothers who have taken upon themselves valiantly, diligently and often without support or praise from the world, to raise up nations in the hope of a better peace and a better world than they themselves have witnessed; May we honor their lives, sacrifice, and memory by rejoicing as they did in the prospect of life, hope, justice and love for the one. May their example distill upon our souls and change our hearts that we make the world for which they yearned.
