Even the Daily Mail can report good news for Scotland, it seems. See this today:

Mary´s Meals now feeding 1.25 million children every school day

‘A charity that provides school meals to impoverished children around the world is now helping more than 1.25 million youngsters following an expansion of its programme. Mary’s Meals said the first few months of this year have seen it reach an additional 20,822 vulnerable children in Zambia and Ethiopia. It means the Scottish-based charity is now providing 1,257,278 of the world’s poorest children with a nutritious daily school meal, bosses said.’

This report comes after a string of comparably heart-warming reports of Scots making a contribution beyond our shores. See these:
