Mothers suffer silently

Letters

IT is clear that mothers in most developing countries still face overwhelming obstacles in fulfilling their roles effectively.
Most of the mothers in such countries face the hardest problems where poverty is highly present and during civil wars.
Some poor countries have not yet unlocked mothers’ potential such as giving them access to land, eradicating gender imbalances and creating employment.
Some mothers carry the burden of raising their children alone when fathers abdicated their responsibilities.
In such cases, there should be strict laws that should enforce fathers who have income to pay maintenance.
Without adequate laws and protection from the government, mothers in poor countries will continue to suffer in silence.
