MARY’S MEALS: Syria Earthquake Appeal


It has been two weeks since the devastating earthquakes in Syria. In this short space of time, we have worked really quickly to deliver food to those in need, which has allowed us to deliver much-needed food aid to those in urgent need.

On the ground, we are working with our local partner, Dorcas, to feed more than 5,000 children and families every day – and we will expand our emergency response as funds allow.

A Dorcas volunteer shares with us: “We are so afraid of going back home and reliving this experience, so we only go to our houses to take the things we need.

“I needed shelter and food and so many others require the same assistance. We should all help each other and respond to the huge need. Volunteering is helping us to heal and is keeping us busy instead of thinking of bad things.”

We expect some of the schools where we usually serve Mary’s Meals to re-open soon. As well as continuing with our emergency response, we will return to feeding children in those schools in Aleppo. Safe in class with their friends, and relishing the routine that education brings, these little ones can learn their way to a better future.

No donation is too small – please give what you can to our Syria Earthquake Appeal today.
