The founder of Mary's Meals, Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow, came to Medjugorje in 1983 for the first time.  It was on his second visit in 1992, when he came bringing the first delivery of humanitarian aid, that his life was changed as well as the lives of millions of children from all over the world. This was the beginning of his humanitarian work as well as the birth of the humanitarian organisation Mary's Meals which today feeds 1,101,206 children on a daily basis all over the world.

CNN elected Magnus as CNN Hero in 2010, while last year TIME magazine placed him on a list of the 100 most influential people in the world.

"Magnus MacFarlane-Barrow has never missed the chance of emphasising how Mary's Meals is a fruit of Medjugorje and accordingly it is our hope that you will join us for the first presentation of his book, translated into Croatian, in Medjugorje", organisers said. (pozivnica)
