30-Hour Famine

WORLD FOOD DAY

Here in Malaysia, many of us share one great love: food. It binds us as a family, community and nation. From mamak sessions to family reunions and now, ordering or sending food over to friends’ homes, it’s undeniable that food is more than a meal. It’s a memory, a feeling, an experience. It warms the soul, fills the stomach and builds bridges in conversation and life.

However, food is also survival. We know that everyone deserves food, but for the first time in over a decade, global hunger is on the rise. It’s a crisis that has worsened due to the impact of COVID-19, climate change and conflict on vulnerable communities around the world.  And as always, children are often the ones who suffer most.

This World Food Day, we invite you to look at food in a new way and discover how you can combat hunger and poverty around the world.

If you know the feeling of going to sleep with a warm and full stomach, we invite you to give those in need the same experiences! World Vision’s 30-Hour Famine tackles the root causes of hunger and poverty through innovative approaches on the ground.

When you donate to the 30-Hour Famine Fund, you’re feeding vulnerable families in Malaysia and around the world. But more than that, you’re supporting holistic transformation in communities through health and nutrition, livelihood, clean water projects and more.

So, what are you waiting for? Celebrate food and share the joy today.
Share your plate of memories with us!

As we lead up to World Food Day on October 16, we invite you to share your favourite food memory with us. Is it the nasi lemak stall near your house that serves up your favourite rendang, or the roast duck your uncle brings for reunion dinner every year? We’d love to hear it!
