Happy
Mother's Day

#HappyMothersDay

Love Increases When Shared  

Mother, Mutter, Mère, Madre, Mamá, Mãe, майка, Mamă, Мама, Мати, Დედა, Ана,μητέρα, اُمّ, Ana; 母亲  Even if the word “mother” is spelled and pronounced differently in all the languages we know and in all the countries where we have offices, it has the same meaning regardless of the place…

“An unconditional and special kind of love”

While a woman needs time, dedication and commitment to invest in her career, the effort to raise a family also brings along new challenges. Before the pandemic, working mothers had to balance a double shift system, where they had to go to work and then spare some time to take care of their children at home. The pandemic, however, has brought about some changes such as physical distance, isolation, working from home and an interruption of formal education, which have, in turn, caused an environment where mothers need to look after their children while working at the same time. These changes have impacted the normal flow of daily life, thus, adding new physical and emotional challenges to women’s responsibilities at home.

How does it feel to be a mother on Mother’s Day that is celebrated at a time when life is so uncertain and irregular?

Once the remote working model entered our lives and schools got closed, the way we live and work in the same house has completely changed. Therefore, working mothers have not only been obliged to adjust themselves to job-related changes caused by the pandemic but they also have had to support their children in their online education process and household chores as well. Every day, mothers all over the world face with this not-so-easy balance between work and home. While this process creates an environment for mothers to spend more time with their children, it can sometimes be challenging for them as well.

Happy Mother’s Day to all mothers across the world who, under any circumstances, make a great effort both at home and in the office!

We increase our love by sharing loving messages sent by mothers, daughters and sons, working in our 63 offices across 24 countries…

A mother is the only person who always puts her children’s needs and well-being above her own needs in any situation and at any age in an unconditional way and without expecting anything in return; mothers are so precious… We need to cherish them. I would like to express my deepest love and gratitude to all mothers. Happy Mother’s Day!

Motherhood is simply where all the love in this world can begin and end, it is a sacrifice you didn’t know you can do, and the strength you didn’t know you had.
Audrey Calvi (Customer service and Documentation Manager) – Arkas France
Mother’s Day is a special day when mothers are honored, thanked for their presence, their work, their love and their everyday care. For me, it is the joy to see the pride in my children's eyes when they tell me their poems and give me their hand-made gifts. But, also, it is a day to thank my mom for everything she has done for me and her never-ending support.
Manuela Oliviero (Office Assistant) - Arkas Italy

Nora Kuzagbe (Customer Service Manager) - Arkas Ghana
Mothers’ Day is a day dedicated to celebrating motherhood. The contribution of mothers in the lives of their children is immense, and though a single day is not enough to thank them for their love and commitment, it is essential to acknowledge them and make them feel special. A mother is truly priceless in terms of her endless love, dedication, and devotion towards her family. My mother has passed away. She was the most loving, sweetest, kindest, gentle person I have ever known. She was a world changer in her own small way. As a single parent, she sold all she had to give my siblings and I a good education. She used to tell me “Nora, everything you can think of, can be achieved”. We were not rich, but we were always happy at home. A mother with a heart of GOLD. Mummy, I miss you and will always remember you. Happy Mother’s Day.

Hello, my name is Oumaima Ben Yahia and I’m the executive assistant in ARKAS TUNISIA … Mother’s Day is so special to me, my greatest blessing has been the birth of my son. My first son. My first everything. In the years to come, I will teach him so much, but he has already taught me what it is to be a mother. He has taught me to be selfless and how it is possible to have a piece of my heart outside of my body. There has never been, nor will there ever be, anything as special as the love between me and him.
Merieme Boudiaf Dami (Sous-Directeur de l’Administration, Moyens & Informatique) – Arkas Algerie
I have over 6 years of experience in HR... And 14 years of total experience combining work and family duties. The pressure to succeed both at work and in motherhood is real. Most women expect to remain in the workforce after starting a family, working mothers do best in an environment that supports both personal and professional growth. ARKAS, supports me by allowing me to have the perfect balance between work and family life.”
Gülşah Kaymak (Customer Representative) – Arkas Istanbul
“Holding my heart in my hands…”
Mrs. Beatrice George (Import Documentation Senior Manager) – Arkas Egypt
“Thank you for choosing me as an example for a successful working mother. My journey as a working mother, having both a successful career and a happy home life seems to most a very difficult goal to achieve as combining a career with motherhood is challenging but I can tell you that it wasn’t like that for me. I’m a mother of two children, my 19-year old son Sherif who is a young man studying at the faculty of Pharmacy [GUC ] & my little girl Mia who is 5 years old (KG2). I started my career in Arkas Egypt when I graduated from university almost 24 years ago, since then I have been working hard & facing all challenges to reach my goals & raise my children. I consider myself a very lucky woman for having a great family who love and support me during my journey, I think the secret & the reason for my success between work and home so far is that I love my job very much and love my family, I believe the key of success is love. I was able to coordinate my time well only with the help of my mother & husband. Motherhood is hard. Raising children is difficult for even the strongest of mothers but in the end, it's the greatest journey any woman can experience.”

Cosmina Chiru (Import Customer Representative) – Arkas Romania

Pepe Civera (Accounting Department) - Arkas Spain
“I consider maternity as a mix of feelings under the shadow of love! Mothers take care of their children, enjoy, suffer… that is a huge responsibility, but when our children say “I love you”, we forget everything and it is one of the happiest moments in our life.”
İlkay Sayılan (PR and Media Relations Manager) – Arkas Istanbul
“Stand on your own two feet.” That is the message my mother has been infusing her daughters with since primary school. Every day she would remind us of this until we were finally be able to stand on our own two feet... Thus, every day, I am grateful for her constant reminders in the past. I am trying to teach this to my daughter, too, and hopefully I will succeed in the end... The pandemic has been very challenging not only for the working mothers but also for mothers who cannot work... I wish all mothers more strength, power and patience than ever... In fact our greatest power is love... Love can always heal, love can still save our world and love increases when shared...
Dima Wehbe (Branch Manager) – Arkas Levant
Mother’s Day is the day I honor the lady who made me what I am today and I achieved all that I have in my life thanks to her guidance, motivation & strong support and most of all because of her unconditional love. I am proudly my mother’s daughter!
Laurene Jawhar (Sales Executive) - Arkas Levant
I know the clichés quotes of Mother’s Day, it’s the utmost gift any lady can be blessed with; but to tell you the truth, for me it was the most difficult, exhausting, hard and tough time that I have ever experienced during the 2 weeks of this Covid confinement when I was not able to carry, hug, kiss, pamper, and play with my babies. I pray that no mother will be deprived of her children one day, and I would like to thank my mom for everything she was and still is, providing us on a daily basis with support, love, care and most importantly the self-confidence and hope we can raise our kids the same way we have been raised by our lovely parents. “
Raneem Dawoud (Import Coordinator) - Arkas Levant
As a new mom of two, I can now recognize how hard motherhood is, on this special day I am missing my mom a lot, but I am sure she is watching over me and my boys. I feel blessed to be a mom appreciating every mother's limitless love and effort. Happy Mother's Day!
Insaf Salhi (Sales Representative) - Arkas Tunusia
Since I had my little sunshine, I’ve felt like my world has changed, because since the day she was born, she has become the sun of my life!

Love Increases When Shared  

Mother, Mutter, Mère, Madre, Mamá, Mãe, майка, Mamă, Мама, Мати, Დედა, Ана,μητέρα, اُمّ, Ana; 母亲  Even if the word “mother” is spelled and pronounced differently in all the languages we know and in all the countries where we have offices, it has the same meaning regardless of the place…

“An unconditional and special kind of love”

While a woman needs time, dedication and commitment to invest in her career, the effort to raise a family also brings along new challenges. Before the pandemic, working mothers had to balance a double shift system, where they had to go to work and then spare some time to take care of their children at home. The pandemic, however, has brought about some changes such as physical distance, isolation, working from home and an interruption of formal education, which have, in turn, caused an environment where mothers need to look after their children while working at the same time. These changes have impacted the normal flow of daily life, thus, adding new physical and emotional challenges to women’s responsibilities at home.

Motherhood is an amazing journey. Sometimes it’s very hard and sometimes it’s incredibly wonderful. The most precious jewels I will ever have around my neck, are the arms of my twins.

“Even though Mother’s Day is celebrated on different days across the world, there is one thing that remains the same in each culture: the importance of mothers. My mom, my best friend, I am so lucky to have you as my mother! Happy Mother’s Day!

“I consider maternity as a mix of feelings under the shadow of love! Mothers take care of their children, enjoy, suffer… that is a huge responsibility, but when our children say “I love you”, we forget everything and it is one of the happiest moments in our life.”
İlkay Sayılan (PR and Media Relations Manager) – Arkas Istanbul
“Stand on your own two feet.” That is the message my mother has been infusing her daughters with since primary school. Every day she would remind us of this until we were finally be able to stand on our own two feet... Thus, every day, I am grateful for her constant reminders in the past. I am trying to teach this to my daughter, too, and hopefully I will succeed in the end... The pandemic has been very challenging not only for the working mothers but also for mothers who cannot work... I wish all mothers more strength, power and patience than ever... In fact our greatest power is love... Love can always heal, love can still save our world and love increases when shared...

Mother’s Day is the day I honor the lady who made me what I am today and I achieved all that I have in my life thanks to her guidance, motivation & strong support and most of all because of her unconditional love. I am proudly my mother’s daughter!
Laurene Jawhar (Sales Executive) - Arkas Levant
I know the clichés quotes of Mother’s Day, it’s the utmost gift any lady can be blessed with; but to tell you the truth, for me it was the most difficult, exhausting, hard and tough time that I have ever experienced during the 2 weeks of this Covid confinement when I was not able to carry, hug, kiss, pamper, and play with my babies. I pray that no mother will be deprived of her children one day, and I would like to thank my mom for everything she was and still is, providing us on a daily basis with support, love, care and most importantly the self-confidence and hope we can raise our kids the same way we have been raised by our lovely parents. “
Raneem Dawoud (Import Coordinator) - Arkas Levant
As a new mom of two, I can now recognize how hard motherhood is, on this special day I am missing my mom a lot, but I am sure she is watching over me and my boys. I feel blessed to be a mom appreciating every mother's limitless love and effort. Happy Mother's Day!
