Mothers are a wonder if they embrace this role and care not only about their children, but about other mothers.
This poster is inspired by that idea but also about special mothers who came together in response to Cyclone Yasi. They were the mothers involved in Operation Angel who raised and sent goods to mothers and other members of the Lower Tully community. Operation Angel is not just made up of mothers but they are at the heart of it.
Do you remember all the mothers in your life?
In many cultures Aunties are like mothers.
Mother figures can enter our lives at many points, acting as mentors, nurturers and steadying points.
Sometimes the mothering role is not well done and this can have far reaching consequences for the whole society, but an empowered mother, empowers others.
