We hope you enjoyed the 24 days of globe-trotting adventures and have enjoyed learning about the countries we serve in, feel inspired after reading the incredible stories from the people we have helped, and had fun creating some of the crafts and recipes each day!
We also hope you had a brilliant Christmas and a happy New Year.
To continue learning more about our life-changing work, why not sign up for our Discovery Air Pass if you haven't already?
The pass will take you on a virtual journey to a few of the countries we serve in over the course of a year, giving you more detailed information about why we serve in the countries we do, and how you can help us support some of the worlds’ most physically and spiritually isolated people.
You can also stay up-to-date with the latest stories and events from MAF UK on our website and via our social media channels, check out the links at the bottom of this page.
In the meantime, thanks very much and all the best for this year ahead!
Dalim Begum lives in an area of Bangladesh that often floods when the seasonal monsoon rains come. This makes it difficult for Dalim and her neighbours to eat a healthy diet when sometimes their crops are washed away.
A MAF partner, Terre des Hommes (TdH) has come up with a special type of garden that helps keep the plants safe because they are planted higher than the flood water can reach.
Now Dalim has her special garden she can feed her family throughout the year with delicious vegetables. She can also sell them at the market to help pay to send her children to school as well as saving some seeds so she can sow them next year.
‘This garden,’ smiles Dalim, ‘is better than the traditional garden because the compost provides nutrition for the whole garden.’
But don't worry, you can still take part in today's competition. Simply head back to the calendar and open today's door.
Mike was happy to be of service, and since he had nothing better to do, he asked if he could accompany Mary and Joseph to Bethlehem. They gladly accepted his offer. ‘We must be off by dawn,’ Joseph said, before Mike lay down on his makeshift bed. Since he was all giddy with excitement, he had a hard time settling down to rest. Mike was always up for a new adventure, and he sensed that this one would be his greatest so far.
This simple but delicious soup is great served with fresh crusty bread, or can be frozen in portions to save for another day.
