Owing to the continued generosity of our supporters around the world, Mary’s Meals is now feeding 923,572 of the world’s poorest children every day they attend school.
In the last four months, we have been able to add close to 30,000 new children to our global school feeding programme, thanks to the unrelenting efforts of our army of supporters who give as much as they can – time, money, skills and prayer – to help the communities in which we are working.
All of these acts of goodness bring us closer to realising our vision that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education. Yet, in a world where 57 million children are out of school and thousands are dying each day due to hunger-related causes, there is still so much for us to do.
Help us make it a million!
The Mary’s Meals campaign began in Malawi in 2002 feeding just 200 children. Twelve years later, relying on kindnesses from across the world, we have now made it over the 900,000 mark and are incredibly close to reaching a major milestone: ONE MILLION CHILDREN being fed every school day.
Across 12 countries – including in conflict-gripped South Sudan and Ebola-hit Liberia – Mary’s Meals is bringing hope to poverty-stricken children in a number of challenging contexts.
Each of the children enrolled in our programme is receiving a nutritious daily meal and sitting in a classroom gaining an education, which is their best hope of escaping poverty in later life. And, as a no-frills charity, it costs us a global average of just £12.20 to feed each of these children for a whole year. With your help, we can make it a million children! Thank you for all your support.
