On behalf of the Syrian people, the Syrian Opposition Coalition (SOC) extends its sincere congratulations to Syrian mothers on the occasion of Mother’s Day as it expresses its genuine appreciation for the tremendous efforts and sacrifices Syrian mothers are making and their great role throughout the difficult ten years of the revolution.
Whether they are mothers of fallen heroes, detainees, the injured, fighters, refugees and the displaced, Syrian mothers have borne extremely heavy burdens; faced the most adverse circumstances; and made ultimate sacrifices, not to mention their natural role and countless responsibilities.
Hundreds of thousands of Syrian mothers are still waiting for the release of their loved ones from the Assad regime’s prisons. Thousands of mothers are estimated to be detained by the Assad regime, while millions are enduring the tragedies of displacement with absolute determination and patience.
Against all odds, Syrian mothers continue to shoulder their duties in holding their families together and preserving the social fabric.
The remarkable strength and resilience Syrian mothers are showing boost our hope for achieving victory and inspire us to continue down the road of freedom and emancipation from tyranny and building a better future for the future generations in a new Syria.
