The mothers who were awarded this year will receive their decorations at the national Mother’s Day ceremony to be held in 2021, said a government press release.

The award-giving ceremony has been deferred to next year due to the emergency conditions caused by the coronavirus epidemic.

In May this year, the president of Finland conferred First Class Medals of the Order of the White Rose of Finland with Golden Cross 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 this year.

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, the press release added.
