Three women from across the UK have been honoured in hand-painted street art in celebration of their incredible efforts to care for their local communities over the year of Covid-19.

One handcrafted mural is located on Cardiff's Quay street and features Professor Alka Surajprakash Ahuja MBE to celebrate her work during the pandemic. Alka Ahuja helped to digitalise NHS Wales within a matter of weeks during the first announcement of lockdown in 2020 to ensure patients could still access professional help.

The #TheArtOfMotherhood mural series has been designed and created by leading female street artists: Natasha Rachel, Rosie Woods and Molly Hankinson, all members of Graffiti Life and coincides with Mothers Day 2021.

Daron Manso, Head of Marketing, Amazon Handmade said: ‘We’re passionate about handmade art and gifts and empowering makers and artisans around the UK and beyond so this Mother’s Day we wanted to capture that spirit by creating three unique, handcrafted murals that celebrate the role mothers play in our community.

"We’re inspired by the work Donna, Alka and Jonelle have done over the last 12 months and are excited to work with local artists to celebrate their stories.’

In a tweet: Professor Alka Surajprakash Ahuja thanked her mother for making her the woman she is today.

Congratualtions Alka!
