SINGAPORE - Prime Minister Lee Hsien Loong took to Facebook on Sunday (May 14) morning to wish all mothers and mothers-to-be a happy Mother's Day.

Said Mr Lee in his post: "Mothers are the pillars of our families, with one of the toughest jobs of all. Nowadays they raise children, build careers, care for elderly parents, or even become the sole parent in a family.

While their roles and responsibilities have evolved, mothers' unconditional love and support remain strong and steadfast.

"Let's celebrate our mothers' contributions as leaders, caregivers, providers, and role models. Take time today, and everyday, to show your mum how much she means to you".
