The families Mercy in Action work with are just about able to feed their families a simple meal most days of the year. However, at Christmas when the city grinds to a halt, there is no work for them: no washing to take in, no passengers wanting a ride on the tricab, no food on the makeshift table.
We want to see families eat every day, and especially at Christmas we want them to be free from worry and able to enjoy the holiday with their children knowing there is food to nourish them.
Will you help us provide meals for hundreds of children and their families this Christmas? Just £1 will enable us to give a street child 2 hot meals. £11 will buy a family enough to keep them well fed for 3 whole days. This gift comes in a sturdy bucket that is a gift in itself and contains rice, fish and all the ingredients to make a simple Christmas meal of spaghetti (the Filipino equivalent of roast turkey)!
We would love to be able to give every one of the 500 families associated with Mercy in Action a bucket containing enough food to help them have a Christmas without feeling hungry.
Help us give hope this Christmas. Thank you.
Mama Maymay received a bucket of food last year. “ We love to celebrate Christmas, but our income is so small, it is such a pressure for me to make ends meet and to feed my family.
On Christmas Eve I collected my bucket of food, it made me so happy. My children were fed good food and they were happy too!"
Help us ensure that children are fed at Christmas: Text MIAC25 £5 to 70070 (or choose a different amount after the £).
Thank you so much for
