30-Hour Famine



We are an international Christian humanitarian organisation dedicated to working with children, families and their communities to overcome poverty and injustice.
We work to promote human transformation, seek justice for the oppressed and demonstrate the love of God for all people.
We serve all people regardless of religion, race, ethnicity or gender.

Today, World Vision is one of the largest humanitarian relief and development organisations in the world, with a partnership of offices in nearly 100 countries.



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?

Raise Funds to Fight Global Issues

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.

Ways You Can Participate

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 DIY Camps are run in two formats: 30-Hour Famine and 26+4 Famine. Open to those aged 13 and above.

30-Hour Famine
You can participate in a DIY Camp, where you’ll fast from solid foods for 30 hours and learn about global issues. You can also be an individual participant, fasting for 30 hours and learning about the issues by yourself.

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.

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.
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.
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. The programme and activities can be tailored to suit the company’s needs and participants will fast for 8 hours. 

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!
