Buy a Bucket of Love!

 Christmas Meal Appeal 2019

The families Mercy in Action work with are just about able to feed their families a simple meal most days of the year.   At Christmas when the city grinds to a halt there is no work for them. No washing to take in, no passengers wanting a ride on the tricab and no food on the makeshift table.

We want to see families eat everyday, and especially at Christmas we want them free from worry and able to enjoy the holiday with their children knowing there is food to nourish them.

Will you help us provide meals for hundreds of children and their families this Christmas? Just £1 will enable us to give a street child a hot meal, £11 will buy a family enough to keep them well fed for 3 whole days. This gift comes in a sturdy bucket that is a gift in itself and contains rice, fish and all the ingredients to make a simple Christmas meal of spaghetti! The Filipino equivalent of roast turkey!

Help us give hope this Christmas. You can donate by buying a bucket below, or via JustGiving:  Thank you

Mama Maymay received a bucket of food last year.  “We love to celebrate Christmas, but our income is so small, it is such a pressure for me to make ends meet and to feed my family.  On Christmas Eve I collected my bucket of food, it  made me so happy. My children were fed good food and they were happy too!”

Help us ensure that children are fed at Christmas:

    My mother was a great one for feeding people. Now she is not with us I wont be able to give her a present, she would have loved to think she is still able to feed others. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks to your website for providing ideas, we had a Filipino dinner party and raised money for your Christmas Bucket Appeal. I am also due to volunteer next Summer in Cebu. Best wishes for all the work you do.
