30-Hours Famine Info

World Vision 30 Hour Famine

Urban Camp Famine Challenge

Why are we doing this?
Over one billion children are living in extreme poverty. They have no access to food, clean water, shelter, medicine and education. The 30-Hour Famine is a tangible way for us to help these children and tell them Malaysians care for them.

How does it work?
24 hours + 6 hours = 30-Hour Famine
  • For 24 hours we fast and learn about global poverty issues through games, activities and videos.
  • The last 6 hours are spent at a star-studded Famine Countdown event at Stadium Putra Bukit Jalil, Kuala Lumpur, where we break fast together with thousands of DIY Famine Campers from every corner of the country!
How can I get involved?
  • Join us: Sign up now as a DIY Famine camper!
  • Donate: Individual donations and corporate sponsorships are welcome.
  • Volunteer: Help make our DIY 30-Hour Famine a reality
  • Spread the word: Send to a friend.
