The mothers who were awarded this year will receive their decorations at the national Mother’s Day ceremony to be held in 2021. This is due to the emergency conditions caused by the coronavirus epidemic.

In May this year, the President of the Republic of Finland conferred a Medal First Class with Gold Cross of the Order of the White Rose of Finland to 36 mothers for their merits as educators. Because of the coronavirus situation, the decorations were not presented at the traditional national Mother’s Day ceremony. 

The district organisations of the Mannerheim League for Child Welfare were meant to organise the presentation of the decorations in the autumn. However, this will not be possible either as the coronavirus epidemic still continues.
