Take a stand against hunger and poverty with one of Malaysia’s largest advocacy and fundraising movements!
The 30-Hour Famine is a global youth movement against hunger and poverty. Participants fast for 30 or 8 hours, learn about global issues and raise funds, transforming hunger into hope. Our slogan for the year is “Strike Out Hunger!”. We want to build a world free of hunger with you. We call on all Famine Fighters to never give up, put up a good fight, believe in what is possible and make miracles happen! This year, we have singer-songwriter Victor Wong as our 30-Hour Famine Ambassador. Due to his warm voice, Victor is a well-loved singer of love songs in the global Chinese pop music scene.
The 30-Hour Famine will be conducted fully in-person this year. Famine Fighters of all ages can choose to participate in the campaign through four categories:
Famine Fighters will come together to learn about global issues and fast for 30 hours, to raise funds for those in need.

Designed for all the families who want to participate together. No age limit.
