Mary's Meals provide daily school meals to more than two million
children, in 19 countries across the globe. It costs
only £19.15 to feed a child for a whole school year. Their
mission is to provide a daily meal in a place of learning to
attract chronically poor children into the classroom, where they
receive an education that can be a ladder out of poverty.
Giving talks for churches is a huge part in raising
awareness and vital funds. As volunteers were unable to
do this in Covid restrictions, founder Magnus sent a video message.

prayer from The Trussell
Trust: Loving God, Thank you for your
love and kindness. You are a God of mercy, justice, and compassion,
and yet we acknowledge that these qualities are not always
reflected in our lives, in our community, and in our society. Help
us to respond to suffering, poverty, and hunger in ways that usher
in your kingdom: to see people as you see them, to share your
loving-kindness in the darkest situations, to challenge injustices
that trap people in poverty, to build a future that sets people
free, so that everyone can share in the fullness of life, that
Christ offers to us all. amen.
