Overcome problems with ingenious yet practical solutions. And remember, every choice you make has its repercussions; it could lead to a celebration, a simple roadblock or worse, a disaster! On top of that, be part of a record breaking attempt as you head out to the streets to shout your cause. This June, Experience More Than Hunger.

It’s about battling hunger, going deeper into what causes it and making the world a better place for children everywhere."
For people in developed countries like ours, hunger is just an uncomfortable feeling that pops up when we miss a meal. But for those in developing countries, with no access to food, they don’t have enough to eat every single day. This affects every aspect of their lives, every day.
Help us fight hunger and malnutrition! 30 Hour Famine is a movement – it is the longest and largest running camp in Singapore to raise awareness of the plight of children who are too hungry to dream. Challenge yourself to experience more than hunger and at the end of it all, understand the difference you can make for needy children in the world.
