Calling all young changemakers 13 years and above! World Vision Singapore's annual 30 Hour Famine returns on 18 and 19 May 2024, at Fort Canning Park. This year's transformative event, themed "Hunger Trials," is an immersive experience aimed to raise awareness about the challenging realities faced by vulnerable children battling hunger and poverty due to conflict and climate disasters.

World Vision Singapore commits to raise a total of $230,000 to provide aid to vulnerable children and families experiencing acute food insecurity in these three countries: Democratic Republic of Congo, Ethiopia and Myanmar. Targets to reach a total of more than 30,000 people including over 21,000 children in the three countries with the funds raised.

A price shocks report released today by World Vision reveals that for the most vulnerable, food prices are still higher than they were before the COVID-19 pandemic. Analysis of food prices from September 2023 shows that a food basket that would cost 1.5 hours of work in Australia, Ireland, or Singapore would take the average worker 36 days to earn the money to purchase in Burundi and 25 days in the Central African Republic.
