Raise funds to fight hunger

Where Your $$$ Goes

Raise funds to fight hunger around the world

The funds you raise will help do things like:

  • Teach parents improved farming techniques
  • Equip families to grow more abundant crops and livestock
  • Provide access to clean water for healthy harvests
  • Run malnutrition centers in food crisis areas
  • Distribute emergency food supplies in disaster areas

In 2016, your funds raised through 30 Hour Famine went to the following countries:

Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Uganda, Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Rwanda,  Zambia, Zimbabwe, Chad, Ghana, Mauritania,  Mali, Niger, Sierra Leone, Myanmar, Tanzania, Afghanistan, Syria, Lebanon, Dominican Republic, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Peru, Brazil, North Korea and the United States.

If your church has an existing project with World Vision and you would like to designate your Famine funds to that project, please call us at 1-800-7-FAMINE.

In 2017, the funds you raise will go to hunger projects around the world.

In addition, funds will be used to help in East Africa.

Famine. Drought. Conflict. These are the deadly forces that children and families throughout East Africa are facing.

Parts of South Sudan are already in the grips of famine, while areas of Somalia, Kenya, and Ethiopia are on the brink of catastrophe. Tens of thousands of children could starve to death because of food and water shortages.

Your 30 Hour Famine funds will in part be used towards this crisis in East Africa. They will help save precious lives and help stop the further spread of famine. And because of grant funds, your gift will have 7X the impact to provide emergency food, clean water, access to life-saving medical care, and more to children and families fighting for their lives.
