Update 18 November
At the end of October a Mary’s Meals film night with supper was held in St Catharine’s Centre to show the progress the charity has made and the difference it has made to numerous children. Many thanks to those who helped us to raise £152.70 This will go to feed the Children of Chibavi School in Mzuzu, Northern Malawi, which is supported by Blairgowrie and District Support Group.
Over one million children are now being fed in 13 countries around the world. Children who may have died of starvation are now able to apply for work which gives them security for their future. It only costs £12.20 to feed one of these children for a whole year.
