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.

Dance to 40 songs in 40 hours? Do 40 good deeds around your home?

The World Vision 40 Hour Famine is New Zealand’s largest youth fundraising event. Every year, hundreds of thousands of young Kiwis have taken a stand through a 40 Hour Challenge to raise money and bring hope to thousands of children living in poverty in more than 40 countries. Can we count on you?

Your fundraising challenge could be to spend 40 hours going without something you rely on – like motorised transport, electricity or food. Or this year you could do it in a way that also sends a message that we must – together – act to better care for our beautiful shared planet. Whatever you decide to do, it all starts with getting your friends together, asking people to sponsor you, and getting active. Check out our resources for more challenge and fundraising ideas!

You can make a real difference for Malawian children and their families.

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.

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

There has never been a better time to take part in the World Vision 40 Hour Famine and join the fight against hunger and injustice in Malawi.
