Mary's Meals Update

Magnus writes "Thank you everyone for your incredible support. 40 schools in Zimbabwe are now receiving Mary's Meals. So 197,363 more children in Zimbabwe in 2019 now enjoy a meal every day.

Your kindness has done this for them".

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.
