His Majesty King Hamad bin Isa Al-Khalifa paid tribute to Bahraini mothers, hailing their landmark achievements in all fields and on all levels.
HM the King took pride in the crucial role played by Bahraini women in their country’s renaissance, hailing them as a school which brought forth successive generations that contributed to the Kingdom’s progress and prosperity.
In recognition of Bahraini women’s noble responsibilities in bringing up generations and caring for their families, HM the King directed the Government’s concerned authorities to enable mothers affiliated with ministries, government bodies and institutions to work from home.
The royal gesture, which takes into consideration the family needs during this exceptional period, provides support to Bahraini working mothers to enable them to take care of their children during the temporary closure of public and private schools and kindergartens.
Competent authorities shall regulate this procedure, taking into account the public interest which requires working mothers to continue performing their duties in vital functions, especially in the health and security sectors, in the service of the homeland and its citizens and residents in all honor and honesty.
