Advocacy - 30-Hour Famine



The 30-Hour Famine is a global movement against hunger and poverty. Each year, our youths unite to learn about hunger, fast for 30 hours and raise funds for those living in poverty.

World Vision Malaysia’s 30-Hour Famine was first organised in 1997 and has since grown to become one of the country's largest annual advocacy-cum-fundraising campaign. Every year, around 30,000 young Malaysians take part in 30-Hour Famine DIY Camps held across Malaysia, making a united stand against hunger and poverty.


30-Hour Famine 2018, the camping committee and campers all gather in a heart-shape to take a picture.


In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, World Vision Malaysia is introducing the 30-Hour Famine: Home Edition.

The Home Edition will allow interested individuals to participate in the comfort of their own home. Materials will be provided and selected activities will be conducted online.


30-Hour Famine: Home Edition

Participants, who are also known as Famine Fighters, will NOT be required to fast from solid food. Instead, they will follow a tailored programme in the comfort of their own home. Children aged 12 and below are advised to participate in the 8-Hour Kidz Famine, a child-friendly version of the 30-Hour Famine. Family and friends are encouraged to support our Famine Fighters by donating to the cause.
