Mary's Meals is a fantastic initiative. Throughout the world, they're providing daily school meals to around 360,000 children. The Celtic Connections appeal is to reinforce their work in Haiti - providing food and medical supplies in the short term, and in the longer term supporting the pupils, helping with the repair and reconstruction of schools, and supporting the wider recovery.
The founder of Mary's Meals will be joining Iain Anderson in a public "in conversation" session at Celtic Connections on 27 Jan at 12.30, along with Jack McConnell (former first minister of Scotland) and Duncan Bannatyne (Dragon's Den). We'll be broadcasting it live on Celtic Music Radio.
