Mary’s Meals provides one good meal to some of the world’s poorest children every school day.
Our work is named after Mary, the mother of Jesus, who brought up her own child in poverty. Mary’s Meals consists of, respects, and reaches out to people of
all faiths and of none.
There are currently (April 2019) 25 Beth Myriams functioning in 16 countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America and Europe. In 2018 about half a million meals were served to socially disadvantaged children, orphans, families, homeless, sick, elderly and those forgotten in the slums, regardless of their nationality, creed or social background. The main thing served at the Beth Myriams is Love, the Love of Our Lord Jesus Christ as we endeavour to serve Him by serving one another. We are particularly proud of how we have been able to combine the serving of a nutritious meal with schooling, basic medical service and in some cases with vocational training.
