Hot Meal for Children in Need

For the 2017/2018 academic year, thanks to funds raised by partners and donors - 1 645 children from 26 regions receive a free hot lunch.

Providing free meal to some particularly needy children is their only opportunity to attend regular classes. In the period 2004-2017, thanks to the Care Partners Network of BRC close to 14 298 children received free meals each school day.

Anyone can support the cause. 1 free meal to 1 child in need in Bulgaria costs BGN 2.

Every donation is valuable for us as even the smallest amount could feed a child in need.

The main objective of the campaign is to support the physical development of orphans, homeless and children of single parents and to reduce their morbidity through a hot meal.
