Summary
After watching a news bulletin about war-torn Bosnia-Herzegovina, Magnus MacFarland-Barrow and his brother agreed to take a week's hiatus from work to help. Neither of them expected it to be a life-changing experience, but what began as a one-time road trip in a beaten-up Land Rover grew to become Magnus' life's work - he left his job, sold his house and directed all of his efforts to feeding thousands of the world's poorest children. Magnus retells how a series of miraculous circumstances and an overwhelming display of love from those around him led to the creation of Mary's Meals; an organization that could hold the key to eradicating child hunger altogether. This humble, heart-warming yet powerful story has never been more relevant in our society of plenty and privilege. It will open your eyes to the extraordinary impact that one person can make.--INSIDE FLAP
