Where We Work
Food changes the story
We firmly believe that every child in the world deserves an education and enough to eat and we have seen the difference that daily meals in a place of learning can make to vulnerable children and whole communities. Whether these daily meals are being served to semi-nomadic children attending Early Childhood Development centres in the desert landscapes of Turkana in Kenya or being enjoyed by Syrian refugee children while they try to rediscover normality through education in their new home of Lebanon, food is changing the story for hungry children all over the world who might otherwise be working or begging to secure their next meal.
Over one third of all children under-five years old suffer chronic malnutrition and 68% of primary school aged children are out of school – the highest figure anywhere in the world and a stark reminder of the need for Mary’s Meals in South Sudan.
