Last month, Mary’s Meals reached a major milestone — the Scottish-based charity is now reaching more than ONE MILLIONhungry children with a daily meal in their place of education; 1,035,637 to be exact.
It’s incredible what can be achieved when people work together with a clear vision. As a grassroots organisation, Mary’s Meals relies on community fundraising, individual giving, and events like the Artemis Great Kindrochit Quadrathlon to support and expand its life-changing school feeding programmes in some of the world’s poorest areas.
There are still 57 million children out of school because of hunger and poverty and at least as many attend class so hungry they can’t concentrate. However, when it costs just £12.20 to feed a child for a whole school year, you can rest assured your fundraising efforts will make a huge difference.
Thank you for helping to support the world’s poorest children, giving them the opportunity of an education and a brighter future. Good luck with your training, and when you’re struggling to see the finish line, just imagine a million special smiles spurring you on.
