Reaching Hand

Karnataka, India

Thanks to your generous donations, we were able to send $10,000 in COVID relief funding to Reaching Hand in July 2021. This was an overwhelming response from our supporters, we are humbled and heartened that so many came forward to help.

Home of Peace

Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia

Local resident, Justine, established the Home of Peace in 1992 to provide shelter and education for girls from squatter families in and around Malaysia’s capital city, Kuala Lumpur.

Green Empowerment

Klo Yaw Lay, Karen State, Myanmar

In 2021, CMaD partnered with Green Empowerment to install a 5kW solar power system at a COVID-19 Emergency Response Centre, which was in desperate need of reliable energy to power its -20°C freezer, used for vaccine storage.

“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…”

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.
