The actor, Gerard Butler, has swapped the glamour of Hollywood to congratulate and support the Christian charity, Mary’s Meals.

Mary’s Meals aims to provide one good meal to some of the world’s poorest children every day and is named after Mary, Mother of Jesus, who brought up her own child in poverty.

The actor was speaking after the charity announced it has reached the milestone of now being able to feed two-million children every school day across the world :

“I personally am so proud to be a supporter of Mary’s Meals because I’ve seen first-hand the joy and hope it brings to children’s lives. And it really does show that food in a child’s place of education does change the story.”

The charity works in 19 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America, Eastern Europe and the Caribbean. It says it's aiming to continue building on its success, 19 years after the charity's work first began.

Before the pandemic, Gerard Butler visited Haiti and Liberia to make a special film "Love Reaches Everywhere" https://www.youtube.com/embed/hSrw2fL1fOU highlighting the work of Mary’s Meals.

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.

Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.

For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.

Your monthly support will make a world of difference. Thank you.
