East Africa Hunger Crisis

Millions of children face starvation

Famine and conflict are having a devastating impact on 25 million people in East Africa.

World Vision is there, providing over one million people with clean water, food, and healthcare. But we need to reach more, and we can with your help. Your support today will save lives.

40 Hour Famine

There’s still time to show your support!

The children of Syria certainly didn’t start the war, but arguably they’re the generation that has suffered the most. This 40 Hour Famine thousands of young New Zealanders banded together to raise funds and show the world we can do something about it.

By donating you will be helping to give a generation of Syrian refugee children education and hope for the future.

You can make a difference, you can change a life

There he met Ms Molu (pictured) where she shared the pain of losing her youngest child simply because she wasn't getting enough food.
