Join the fight against hunger and injustice today.

A massive thank you to everyone who said “you can count me in!” Every cent you’ve raised makes a life-changing difference.

Thank you New Zealand!

Over the weekend of 5th-7th June, thousands of young Kiwis took part in the World Vision 40 Hour Famine; raising life-changing money for the families and children of Malawi affected by climate change. 

Despite the challenges we have all faced over the last few months, physical distancing was no match for awesome, inspiring young Kiwis like you.

Across the country, Kiwis participated in mufti days, sausage sizzles, bake-sales, carnivals and so much more! We were inspired by some crazy and brilliant fundraising ideas; from walking 40km in 40 hours to a 24-hour lock-in sleepover. 

Thanks to your help, we can win the fight against hunger and injustice in Malawi. The funds you have raised will provide communities in Malawi with sustainable farming tools like seeds, watering systems and goats. 

It's time to make sure your hard work counts!

Your funds can’t be used to make a difference until they’re in the bank.
Collect and deposit your cash donations to provide vital support for kids like Prisca and Yohane.

Thanks to your help, we can win the fight against hunger and injustice in Malawi.

As we respond to the COVID-19 pandemic in our nation and around the world, climate-vulnerable communities in Malawi continue to experience the chaos caused by droughts and cyclones, resulting in food shortages, hunger and malnutrition. In these uncertain times, now, more than ever, it is your support that can make a real difference for Malawian children and their families, by providing them with the support they need to adapt to and survive the changing climate.

71.9% of Malawians are subsistence farmers, which means they grow all the food that they eat rather than shop for it. 
One bad harvest, due to drought or flooding can mean the difference between surviving and children going to bed hungry.
Destructive cyclones, droughts and floods that are unseasonal, unpredictable and devastating have left children and families hungry.

Can you imagine living in fear of the weather?

Can you imagine living in fear of the weather?

Prisca (14), Malawi

We are used to the rain in New Zealand but imagine fearing it. For 14-year-old Prisca, fearing the rain is her new reality. Unseasonal and unpredictable weather events like cyclones, droughts and floods have devastated Prisca's community in Malawi repeatedly over the last few years. 
For families like Prisca's, who get nearly all their food from their farm, extreme weather events are their greatest fear. Without their crops, they have no food, resulting in food shortages, hunger and malnutrition.
Right now, Malawi is facing a twin crisis: As they struggle with the impacts of climate change, they too are facing the added pressures of the COVID-19 pandemic. They need your support now more than ever.
