Mary’s Meals to feed and educate Syrian refugees children

  • Written by:
  • 1 Reply

In the consideration to the adverse hunger and lack of education for the Syrian children in the various refugee camps, the United Nations UN had long before now revealed that if no emergent positive support and care is rendered to the over two million Syrian refugee children that it will lead to the ‘lost of generations’ with evidence showing that it becomes more and more difficult to get children back into school the longer they are out of it.

In these note, the Global child hunger charity Mary’s Meals have approved and made plans of embarking on her first school feeding programme in the Middle-East. The Mary’s Meal charity will be locating at Lebanon where majority of the Syrian refugees have crossed to. Lebanon will be the thirteenth (13th) country where Mary’s Meal Charity have located a branch for charity work among countries like; Malawi, Liberia, Zambia, Kenya, Haiti, India and South Sudan.

The Syrian children receiving Mary’s Meals will be fed and educated alongside Lebanese children, thanks to a “double-shift school system” implemented by the government in Lebanon. This means that local children attend lessons in the morning alongside Syrian children who have adapted well to the Lebanese curriculum, while other Syrian children are educated in the same classrooms during the afternoon.

Mary’s Meals’ founder and CEO, Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow said:

“I’m sure we all feel deep compassion – perhaps even outrage – at the desperate plight of refugees forced to flee from war-torn Syria. As always, it is innocent children who suffer the most.

“For a number of months, we have been investigating how Mary’s Meals can do its small part in alleviating some of the suffering caused by this greatest humanitarian crisis of our time – and I am extremely pleased that, thanks to the support of People’s Postcode Lottery and its players, we will soon begin serving school meals to a small number of Syrian children who have settled in neighbouring Lebanon, as well as to their Lebanese classmates.

“Amid the carnage of the conflict in Syria, Mary’s Meals and its generous supporters can provide a glimmer of hope by attracting Syrian refugee children back into the classroom with a nutritious daily meal – just as we do in other countries around the world, where the introduction of Mary’s Meals results in sharp increases in enrolment, attendance and academic performance.”

“With 59 million children out of school around the world and many more chronically hungry, it’s easy to become overwhelmed by the scale of poverty and suffering. That’s why we always call on our supporters to help us reach the next hungry child waiting for Mary’s Meals.

“When it comes to a terrifying conflict like the one raging today in Syria, the temptation to despair is even greater. But, since every single Syrian child out of school represents a lifetime’s potential under threat, we are determined to do what we can – and we know our supporters will be determined too.”
