For the longest time, Mother's Day was all about my mother. Getting her the best gift, a dinner in her honor, and after her mother died -- trying to assuage her grief. At the time, I didn't understand that when she mourned her mother, it didn't diminish the love she...

Happy Mother's Day

Ben Affleck | Posted May 12, 2012


It's every mother's human right to give her children health, safety and happiness, no matter where she is from.

Today mothers in the Congo face unimaginable hardships. Inadequate health care, violence and grinding poverty often stand in the way of future prospects and opportunities for their children. But there's hope. There are amazing community-based organizations affecting change everyday.

As you celebrate the moms in your life, please help us raise awareness and support for moms in eastern Congo and the local organizations that are working to improve their lives and communities.

HERE'S HOW YOU CAN HELP:
1) SHARE THIS VIDEO via the Huff Post social share buttons to support moms in eastern Congo.
