Over 30 rucksacks have been collected for the Backpack Project and are now on the way to the charity. The response has been excellent - Thank you.
Most of the children who will benefit from Mary's Meals and the Backpack project have suffered war, poverty, famine or natural disaster. Very often families cannot afford to buy basic things like pencils and copy books, or even suitable clothes for their children to wear to school. A simple backpack with educational materials can be a lifeline to children.
