Supporting Mary's Meals

Already on November 11, Prince Hans-Adam II and Princess Marie hosted a reception in honour of Mary's Meals Day at their family's Stadtpalais in Vienna. Founded in 2002, Mary's Meals is an international charity that funds school feeding projects in some of the world's poorest communities where hunger and poverty prevent children from gaining an education. Starting out with about 200 children in Malawi, Mary’s Meals now provides a daily meal to more than 800,000 children in 16 countries in Africa, Asia, the Caribbean, Eastern Europe and South America. Princess Marie has been a long-time supporter of the charity.

For the event in Vienna as well as one at the Glasgow Royal Concert Hall in Scotland, two girls from Jacaranda school for orphans in Blantyre, Malawi had travelled to Europe to give music performances. While at the Stadtpalais in the Austrian capital it was no other than Prince Hans-Adam, the owner himself, to explain the history and furnishings of the palace to the girls. Have a look on the Facebook page of Marie da Silva of the Jacaranda Foundation and School in Malawi to view more pictures of the event.
