Created in 2014, this community of mothers has grown to 3000 members across Paris and the suburbs. The group organises events, get-togethers, playgroups, etc. supporting each other as women and working mothers.
The past 12 months have been quite emotional for this tight-knit group whose ‘mother hen’ Meagan Le Coq moved to Australia early in the year. One member’s 4-year-old daughter, Olivia, was diagnosed with a malignant tumour, but the community pulled together and showed outstanding support for her parents. Today Olivia is a happy, healthy 5-year-old.
Yvette, a young Kenyan mother was left to fend for herself and her new-born baby, in a country where she didn’t speak the language. Once again, the community pulled together: Some mothers set up a food train, others organised temporary shelter, and another helped out with official paperwork. One group member even purchased tickets to Nairobi for Yvette and her baby.
