30-Hour Famine 2019


5 Myanmar children looking into the camera laughing and smiling widely and happily. The theme for this year's 30-Hour Famine is Kita sama-sama change the world.

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. We are so excited to have Azora Chin (尤长靖 You Zhangjing) join us as this year's 30-Hour Famine Ambassador. Kita sama-sama change the world!
