Sulat Kay Nanay (Letter for Nanay)


Throughout this week, we've been celebrating Mother's Day by listening to our community and honouring their stories. We did this by asking 12 Pina/xys to write a letter for their Nanays or a Nanay in their lives.

It's been hard for us to read and digitize all the letters, as so many of these narratives hit home. There are stories of grief, separation, regret, loss, while there are also feelings of gratitude, hope, love and care.

We didn't know what to expect when we initially thought of doing this project. We certainly did not expect for it to be this emotional, to be this powerful. We could only hope that these stories are meaningful to you, as they are for us.

This Mother's Day, we celebrate all nanays. We celebrate the Nanays who share their resilience to their anaks everyday. The Nanays we lost. The Nanays who have lost. The Nanays who time and time again have never failed to sacrifice.

To all our contributers, our community, Maraming Maraming salamat for the gift of your voice, the gift of your and/or your Nanay's story. We are extremely honoured to hold space for each and one of them. 💖
