30-Hour Famine 2020


Break the Limits! for 30-Hour Famine 2020. Mongolian children running in the background.

World Vision Malaysia's 30-Hour Famine is a global youth movement against hunger and poverty. Participants raise money for those in need by getting sponsored to give up solid food for 30 hours. World Vision also organises various 8-Hour Famine events for children under 12, families and companies. Our 30-Hour Famine ambassador this year is Eric Chou (周兴哲).
