Healing Liberia’s Women & Children

The bulletin titled, “Liberia: Major Effort Needed to Address Gender-Based Violence” released by Refugees International, highlights the perils many Liberian women and Children faced during Liberia’s war, and the perils they continue to face today.

Mothers in Peril: A Reflection of a Nation.

"Sweet Mother" a song released by the late Prince Nico Mbarga, a popular Nigerian musician in 1976, spoke to the core reasons why we must celebrate our mothers and never forget our mothers.

Mbaraga's, melodious tune chimed (in Nigerian Pidgin English) "Sweet mother I no go forget you for the suffer wey you suffer for me" (meaning: Sweet mother, I will never forget you for the sufferings you had to undergo for me). Mbaraga went on to say, "If I forget you [mother], therefore I forget my life and the air I breathe." "If you forget your mother you've lost your life."

In essence, Mbaraga's lyrics re-emphasized the old saying, "The hand that rocks the cradle rules the nation and its destiny." In other words, the state of a Nation’s Mothers reflects the state of the nation.

At the heels of Mother's Day celebrations, the study "State of the World’s Mothers 2004" released by Save the Children, unearths the troubling question - have we forgotten the mothers in most of Africa? more >>>>
