Mary's Meals Update

A message from Magnus:  "Thank you for everything you do for so many suffering children in this world. 1,500 children now receive a daily meal in Aleppo. A further 1,430 Syrian refugees are also receiving a meal thanks to your generosity. Together let us continue this journey one step at a time, one meal at a time, one child at a time.  Thank you."

A huge thank you for the 25 exercise books, toothpaste and soap received this week. We can now complete 15 more backpacks for the children. Please keep it coming, especially larger shorts for the boys.

All contributions are really appreciated. Please just pop them in the box in the Church porch.

The Vision of Mary's Meals 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.

Magnus, who runs the charity, has just published his first book explaining just how the charity began.  It is called "The Shed That Fed a Million Children"  Over one million children now receive a daily meal of porridge - and it is organised from the shed in his garden!  It is an awesome read! You can buy it here http://www.amazon.co.uk/Shed-That-Million-Children-Extraordinary/dp/0007578326

He finishes with "Our work has just begun - we have 47 million more children to feed!"  Many thanks for your kind donations.
