Day 7 of our Advent Calendar sees us donating £139 to a new charity for us “Mary’s Meals“. This will provide 10 meals for a year for children in some of the 17 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe, and the Caribbean that Mary’s Meals works.
This donation will be matched by the UK Government so our donation will help twice as many children.
From their website:-
“Our vision is that every child receives one daily meal in their place of education and that all those who have more than they need, share with those who lack even the most basic things.
Working together with those who share our vision, we believe there is no good reason why this cannot be realised.”
Mary’s Meals is a global movement supported by people from many walks of life and different backgrounds.
Our mission is to enable people to offer their money, goods, skills, time, or prayer, and through this involvement, provide the most effective help to those suffering the effects of extreme poverty in the world’s poorest communities.
We welcome all into the Mary’s Meals family and we believe everyone has something important to contribute to the realisation of our vision.
