“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.

Garden for Nutrition programs - Timor Leste - Part 2

Malnutrition continues to be a serious challenge for children in Timor Leste due to lack of basic hygiene, nutrition practices and a lack of access to nutritious food.

CMaD is work with HIAM health to start another project that addresses this issue. The project will:
1. Improve knowledge of nutrition and sanitation practices to combat malnutrition, from immediate interventions to long-term nutrition strategies;
2. Increase access to nutritious food by empowering mothers and their families to maintain and fully use their own nutrition-sensitive climate-smart ‘home kitchen gardens’.
The project will empower a group of specially-selected mothers and their households to pioneer the growing of nutritious, healthy food for family meals, and lead as successful examples in their community.

Meal-a-Day Fund (Asia-Pacific)

Check out the great work being done by our friends from Meal-a-Day (CMaD) UK 🙂Have you ever been caught short while out for a walk and needed to had to hid behind a tree to go to the toilet? How about having to do that every time you need to go? How about having to walk into the woods to do it at night? Would you feel safe? How would you feel drinking the water from the local well knowing the risk of pollution?

That is what it is like for the members of Talia village – or was – until CMAD provided funds for them to build a toilet block.

Now they have a safe toilet that stops the spread of disease as well.
