A hopeful message from Mary's Meals

Daniel Adams, UK Executive Director, Mary’s Meals, wrote: I am deeply moved by the way church leaders across the UK have embraced technology to reach out to their congregations at this time.

You have inspired us to create a series of special messages especially for churchgoers. These short films will include updates on how Mary’s Meals is feeding hungry children through this pandemic and personal reflections on how faith is bringing hope and comfort. The first message, shared in April, came from our founder Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow. I am pleased to now share a second message, from Mary’s Meals' leaders in India and Kenya.

I hope you will continue to spread the word about our mission by sharing these messages during your services, on your websites or social media. Until we can meet again, please know that you and your congregation are in our prayers. Thank you for all your support. May the Lord bless and keep you.
