What is the 30-Hour Famine?

The 30-Hour Famine is an advocacy campaign that gives you the opportunity to raise your voice for those living in hunger and poverty! Click the button below to learn more about this year’s focus issue now!

FOCUS TOPIC 2020

Livelihood

During winters, Mongolia can experience a severe cold weather phenomenon called “dzud”. Large numbers of livestock die from either starvation or cold, and these losses have a devastating impact on herder livelihoods.

Clean Water & Sanitation​

The infrastructure in poor communities is inadequate, and many vulnerable families lack proper water and sanitation systems. Issues like poor sanitation facilities, a lack of proper hygiene awareness and practices, a lack of access to clean and safe drinking water and poor waste management have a negative impact on poor families.

Taiwanese singer-songwriter Eric Chou is regarded as Asia’s new King of Mandopop due to his self-penned hits and soulful vocals. His debut song The Distance of Love went viral in 2014, amassing 161 million views on YouTube and garnering him a strong following across the region. The bilingual star has five albums, has collaborated with multiple big brands and is the youngest recipient of KKBOX’s “Top 10 Artists of the Year” in the award’s history when he first received the award in 2016. He was again awarded in 2019. Eric’s passion and dedication to his craft has captured the hearts of many.

As the 30-Hour Famine Ambassador 2020, Eric will use his voice to share his vision of a better life for vulnerable children and encourage people to join him as they turn their shared vision into reality!

PARTNERS 2019

NOTICE

In light of COVID-19 outbreak and with consideration for everyone’s health and well-being, we have decided to revise the 30-Hour Famine format for this year only. All related activities such as the upcoming Camp Leader Training Workshop, 30-Hour Famine DIY Camp, 8-Hour Famine DIY Camp and 30-Hour Famine Countdown will be put on hold until next year.

All who are interested can participate as an individual participant and go through the materials provided in the comforts of their own home. Even though this year’s 30-Hour Famine will be different to past years, we believe that this will not affect our intention and heart for the vulnerable. If anything, it will make us stand stronger in solidarity!  

In these trying times, we urge everyone to maintain good personal hygiene and take good care of your health. At the same time, we must not forget those who are vulnerable living in places where the outbreak will potentially cause misery.

We apologise for any inconvenience caused. Once again, thank you for your love and support. Please stay tuned as we release more 30-Hour Famine related announcements in the coming days.

With gratitude,
World Vision Malaysia
