Lent Project: Crisis in Ethiopia

The people of Tigray are living in fear of imminent starvation. The brutal fighting, taking place away from the eyes of the world, has forced many to flee their homes. The city of Mekelle is being overwhelmed by displaced people arriving with nothing at all. Many of them are unaccompanied children who have lost their parents.

Probably amongst those children are some who used to eat Mary’s Meals at school, because before this conflict we were serving 24,230 children in the region each day.

—Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, founder of Mary’s Meals

Support our Lent project this year, Mary’s Meals.

The best way to give is directly via the Mary’s Meals website, but you can also use the ‘Lent Project’ slot of the safe at the back of church to make cash donations.
