World Vision’s 30-Hour Famine is a global youth movement against hunger and poverty. Participants give up solid food for 30 consecutive hours to raise funds for children in need.

Every year, thousands of Malaysian youths and thousands more around the world, unite through World Vision’s 30-Hour Famine to raise funds that will improve the lives of children and families in need.

How Does It Work?

Learn About Global Issues– Open the eyes of youth to global issues beyond their comfort zone and educate them on how they can be part of the solution.

Raise Funds to Fight Global Issues – Join a DIY Camp or be an individual participant to raise funds for the cause.

Experience It – Go hungry for 30 consecutive hours and stand in solidarity with those facing hunger and poverty around the world.

Send in Your Funds & Change Lives – Send in your funds to World Vision so that it can be utilised for sustainable programmes to combat hunger and poverty in different communities around the world.

In Malaysia, there are various formats of the 30-Hour Famine to allow people from all walks of life to take a stand against global issues affecting those in need:

30-Hour Famine
Spend 30 solid hours fasting and learning about global issues. Join a DIY Camp or participate as an individual participant. Open to those aged 13 and above.

26+4 Famine
Organise your own 26-hour DIY Camp on the official Famine Weekend and spend the last 4 hours with other campers across Malaysia at the Famine Countdown event, often held at a stadium.

8-Hour Kidz Famine
A child-friendly version of the 30-Hour Famine for those aged 12 and below. Participants will fast for 8 hours and engage in activities purposefully designed for children.

8-Hour Parent & Child Famine
Similar to the 8-Hour Kidz Famine, this version of the 30-Hour Famine involves parents and is ideal for families who want to participate together. Open to children aged 12 and below.

8-Hour Corporate Famine
A corporate worker friendly version of the 30-Hour Famine, the 8-Hour Corporate Famine provides companies the opportunity to be involved in the global movement. Programme and activities can be tailored to suit the company’s needs and participants will fast for 8 hours. 








A group of teenagers in Calgary, Canada saw news of a devastating famine in Ethiopia. Heartbroken by what they learned, they staged an event in a church basement to see what it was like to be hungry and raise money and awareness for the children who were affected. The funds raised went to World Vision.

The beginning of 30-Hour Famine in Malaysia. The campaign was conducted in Mandarin and held at the headquarters of Sin Chew Daily, garnering more than 300 participants.

The 30-Hour Famine turned bilingual this year. First 30-Hour Famine held in East Malaysia.

The start of "Do-It-Yourself" (DIY) Camps. The 30-Hour Famine was decentralised in a move to widen its reach and empower its participants with the 26 + 4 format. For 26 hours, trained camp leaders ran DIY Camps at their preferred locations, and all came together for a star-studded Countdown event for the final 4 hours, held at the National Hockey Stadium in Bukit Jalil. More than 4,000 participants attended the Countdown event.

This year saw an increase in the number of DIY Camps held nationwide. The 8-Hour Kidz Famine was also introduced for children aged 12 years and below to participate in the campaign.

Introduction of the 8-Hour Corporate Famine, the corporate worker friendly version of the 30-Hour Famine.

Birth of the 8-Hour Parent & Child Famine for families to be a part of the campaign together.

Today, more than 1.5 million young people around the world have participated in this life transforming programme organised by World Vision in various countries worldwide. We are glad you are now one of them!
