Support Mary’s Meals this Christmas

Every school day Mary’s Meals provides much needed nutrition for more than 2 million children across 19 of the world’s poorest countries. This Christmas the charity is asking for your help to feed even more.

It costs Mary’s Meals just 9 cents to provide a nutritious meal for a child in their place of education. The average cost of Christmas dinner in Ireland this year is €20, for just €18.30 you could feed a child for a whole school year. 

Donate the cost of a Christmas dinner this year and you could change a young person’s life forever.

About Mary’s Meals

Mary’s Meals is the simple solution to world hunger, the charity’s vision 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. Working together with those who share its vision, Mary’s Meals  believes there is no good reason why this cannot be realised.

Today, over 58 million primary school-age children miss school because of poverty. Instead of sitting in a classroom, they are working in fields, begging on street corners, or scavenging among the garbage just to survive. Millions more attend school so hungry that they are not able to concentrate and learn. Education is vital for these children to help them break the cycle of poverty. 

 As an organisation working in some of the world’s poorest communities, Mary’s Meals is  committed to keeping its running costs low to maximise the good the charity can do with the donations entrusted to it. At most, Mary’s Meals spend just 7 cents of every euro donated on governance and fundraising. This is only possible because most of the charity’s work is done by an army of volunteers in Ireland and in the countries where the charity operates.
