The 40 hour famine is back! And we can’t wait for you to join us. 

Right now, 41 million people are at risk of falling into famine. The cost of doing nothing in countries where children and communities have been devastated by conflict, extreme weather events, COVID-19 and now the risk of starvation – is too great – many will not survive. 

Like you, we can’t sit back and do nothing. World Vision is on the ground responding to the needs of millions of hungry people across the globe. Join us, your time to act is now.

Simply head on over to the 40 hour famine registration page where you’ll find all the information to sign-up, stand up and speak out. Participating means you can help change their story.
