Mother and child

Apr 15, 2016

The bond between a mother and her child transcends all cultures. In anticipation of Mother's Day, here are some of our favorite mother and child photos from World Vision's work with moms and children around the world.

Want to make a difference in the life of a mother and baby? This Mother's Day, honor your mom by giving the gift of a New Mother and Baby Kit in her name. By providing a New Mother and Baby Kit, you can help save young lives by giving a new mother essential things like a bassinet, cloth diapers, blankets, and a container for clean water. Your gift also provides them with life-saving infant-care training.

And a gentle reminder: call your mom.
