Christadelphian Meal-a-Day

Meal-a-Day is a global charity, providing local support and relief to some of the poorest communities in the world.  Since the 1970s, Meal-a-Day has supported hundreds of sustainable projects around the world, run by members of the local community and their supporters – each helping to overcome the effects of hunger, disease, disability and homelessness and vitally, bringing new hope.

Our Work

In Asia-Pacific, we have so far reached communities in Afghanistan, Bougainville, Cambodia, India, Malaysia, Myanmar, Nepal, the Philippines, Thailand and Timor-Leste. We have also recently established partnerships with local community organisations in Vanuatu and are exploring options in other Asia-Pacific countries such as Bangladesh.

Our portfolio is currently made up of 7 practical projects across 6 countries in Asia-Pacific, working in partnership with local community organisations on the ground in India, Malaysia, Nepal, Thailand, Timor Leste and Vanuatu.

“The Lord has anointed me to preach good news to the poor. He has sent me to bind up the broken hearted, to proclaim freedom for the captives and release from darkness for the blind, to proclaim the year of the Lord’s favour…”

Jesus Christ - fulfilling the prophecy of Isaiah (61:1-3)

 

Our Mission

Together with the other Meal-a-Day regional teams and local communities, we seek to:

Facilitate self-sufficiency through sustainable ‘down-to-earth’ projects
Help to overcome the effects of hunger, disease, disability, destitution and homelessness
Promote agriculture, clean water, basic health-care and education
Encourage sharing, learning and service to others.

The charity is managed by volunteers who give freely of their time, money and expertise. This also means our administrative costs are very low, so we are able to deliver around 92% of income directly to fund these community projects.

But Why?

Meal-a-Day started out as a UK-registered charity, established in 1976: A small group of Christadelphians from Tamworth, UK assembled with the aim of addressing the needs of others, especially in the developing world.  Around that time, the US Secretary of State, Henry Kissinger, made a speech concerning the need to try to provide at least “one meal a day” to every person on earth.  This struck a chord with the founding group and so the Meal-a-Day Fund was born.

Special thanks to our partners throughout Asia Pacific who deliver long lasting change to the lives of our desperately in need neighbours.

Without all those who freely give their resources of time, money, ingenuity and encouragement this would not be possible. The glory is to God who has provided us with these gifts we can share with others.
