30-Hour Famine

Take a stand against hunger and poverty with one of Malaysia’s largest advocacy and fundraising movements!

Future Starts with You(th)!

The 30-Hour Famine is a global youth movement against hunger and poverty. Participants fast for 30 hours, learn about global issues and raise funds, transforming hunger into hope. Our slogan for the year is “Future Starts with You(th)!” We want to encourage the continued brave and powerful voices of young people to fight hunger and poverty, and create a better future together! This year, our 30-Hour Famine Ambassador is Hong Kong singer-songwriter, lyricist, actor and clothing brand owner Pakho Chau.


To further elevate and enrich the Famine experience, "Do-It-Yourself" (DIY) Camps are back this year. Famine Fighters of all ages can choose to participate in the campaign through four categories:
