Performing umrah without a mahram

Q: My mother's age is 59 years and she wishes to do umrah but we have financial resources of only one person to perform umrah. I do not have money to perform umrah and be a mahram for my mother. So please advise if my mother can go alone to perform umrah?

A: No.

And Allah Ta'ala (الله تعالى) knows best.
