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. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the 30-Hour Famine: Home Edition was introduced in 2020. Participants will follow a 30-hour programme designed to help them learn more about global issues from the comfort of their own home. A child-friendly version, the 8-Hour Kidz Famine (an 8-hour programme) is also available for children aged 12 and below. Our 30-Hour Famine ambassador this year is Eric Chou (周兴哲).
