An international school-feeding charity is planning to provide meals to more than one million children at home as part of the Covid-19 response.
Despite school closures due to the pandemic, Mary’s Meals will continue to deliver food to children in Malawi and Zambia by inviting their parents to collect rations to cook at home.
Patricia Friel, Executive Director of Mary’s Meals Ireland, says staff and community volunteers are aiming to distribute food to around 4,000 villages in Malawi alone.
“Getting the food out to communities [sic] wouldn’t be possible without generous support from people all over the world,” says Friel.
“We are amazed at the level of support that has continued from the Irish public through these difficult times and are extremely grateful for their generosity and kindness.”
