Mary’s Meals aim to reach 43,000 children with Double The Love campaign
Mary’s Meals launched its ‘Double The Love’ campaign today, with the aim of reaching more than 43,000 hungry children in Liberia with a life-changing meal at school.
The campaign aims to raise money to produce nutritious food, prepared by local communities, to be served at schools. This will not only attract children into the classroom but also gives them the energy to be productive learners. As a UK Aid Match appeal, all public donations to the campaign will be matched by the UK government.
Daniel Adams, executive director of Mary’s Meals, says: “Many families in Liberia face an unrelenting daily struggle to feed their children and the Covid-19 pandemic has only added to these huge challenges. Double The Love will bring new hope to Liberian communities who are waiting for Mary’s Meals.
“In such a challenging year this generous match funding from the UK government offers an incredible opportunity for us all to work together to transform the lives of many more hungry children in Liberia. Through the dual gift of food and education, hungry children today will be able to grow into tomorrow’s educated adults who can lift their communities out of poverty.”
