Advocacy - 30-Hour Famine



The 30-Hour Famine is a global movement against hunger and poverty. Each year, our youths will unite to learn about hunger, go hungry themselves for 30 hours and raise funds for those living in poverty.

World Vision Malaysia’s 30-Hour Famine was first organised in 1997 and has since grown to become the country's largest annual fundraising cum advocacy event. Every year, around 30,000 young Malaysians take part in 30-Hour Famine DIY Camps held across Malaysia, making a united stand against hunger and poverty.


30-Hour Famine 2018, the camping committee and campers all gather in a heart-shape to take a picture.


We also organise a few 8-Hour variations of the Famine:


8-Hour Kidz Famine campers discussing using a piece of paper.


The 8-Hour Kidz Famine is a scaled-down version of the Famine catered to those aged 12 and below. Children will raise funds, fast for eight hours, and take part in games and programmes designed specifically for them.


8-Hour Kidz Famine campers and committee formed a K.I.D. shape.


The 8-Hour Parent & Child Famine caters to parents and children who would like to get involved in the Famine as a family.


Tekmark Sdn Bhd participated with World Vision Malaysia for a 8-Hour Corporate Famine. Seen here is the CEO's son with Winnie Khor from World Vision Malaysia.


The 8-Hour Corporate Famine is a partnership open to all companies. It can be personalised, allowing employees and employers to take part in advocacy, fundraising and fasting activities during normal work hours.
