- 40 Hour Famine
New Zealand did it! More than 150,000 of you registered to take part in the World Vision 40 Hour Famine over the weekend of 25-27 May 2012.
You went hungry, voiceless, technology-less - you name it, we saw it... and it was awesome…
This year, the target is $2.5 million to help hungry communities in the developing world, particularly in Mali and Niger, where a hunger crisis is threatening millions.

- Africa United film screening
World Vision and Tertiary Student Christian Fellowship have partnered together for this exclusive charity film screening of "Africa United" -- the extraordinary story of a ragamuffin team of African kids set out on an impossible dream to make it to the Soccer World Cup.
Through the adventures of these kids, you will get a small insight into some of the hard hitting issues faced by African children; and feel the the joy, laughter and hope - 'the ubuntu' - that comes from making an incredible journey together. It's a cinematic story of adventure, hope, and triumph -- a window into life in Africa.
